Description of the book "Walking Through Fire, An Iwo Jima Survivor's Remembrance":
What was it like to run through a hailstorm of deadly enemy fire in the bloodiest battle in the Pacific of World War II? On February 19, 1945, Arvy Geurin, a Radioman 3rd Class, United States Navy, was about to find out as he and his Beach Party were ferried via amtrack onto the volcanic ash beach at Iwo Jima. "We weren't action heros or extrordinary men," he says. "We were farm boys and city jocks- scholars and drop-outs- rich and poor- were were just young men brought together by a common goal, moving toward the hungry jaws of war PDF."
"Walking Through Fire: An Iwo Jima Survivor's Remembrance" is one man's time on that small Japanese Island so critical to the outcome of World War II. This former Navy Radioman does not consider himself a hero, even though with his action, lives were saved. He landed with the Fourth Marines and entered hell on earth, an ordinary man who became extraordinary under intense enemy fire. The author is 82 years of age and lives with his wife in Capitola, California.
