Live From Iwo Jima With The U.S. Marines

first published on May 18, 2016 by

Marine Combat Radio Correspondents with the 4th Marine Division report live from the beaches of Iwo Jima during the initial attack on the island.

Two Marine Combat Correspondents report live from the landing crafts as they hit the beaches of Iwo Jima. It’s not often that we get to hear such clear audio from WWII, but listen closely as the correspondents report.

At multiple points in the audio, you can hear the front-line Marines shouting orders, while Japanese and Marine machine guns rattle off reports at each other. At another point in the recording, the correspondent spots a Marine as he gets shot.
