Sands of Iwo Jima
When Freedom from her lofty height
Unfurled her banner to the air
She tore the ash a robe of Light
And set the Stars of Glory there
The Sands of Iwo Jima is a game about the most famous battle fought between the United States Marine Corps and the Imperial Forces of the Empire of Japan. Having fought their way across the Pacific during the past three bloody years, the Marine divisions stand poised to seize the first piece of historically Japanese territory in February 1945 - Iwo Jima (Sulfur Island).
