Iwo Jima was a pivotal battle in the American island-hopping campaign during World War II. The US and its allies in the Pacific determined that the best path to defeat of the Empire of Japan was to retake one island after another from the Japanese to push them back to mainland Japan.
With Iwo Jima taken, the United States Army Air Forces would have a launching pad for the newly-built B29 bombers, providing extended range and greater capability to launch massive bombing raids on mainland Japan to push the empire to its knees.
As depicted on this 30 oz Antique Finish Iwo Jima Silver Statue, you’ll note the moment when a group of United States Marines climbed the summit of Mount Suribachi to raise the American flag as a symbol of the US defeat of the Japanese on the island.
The image featured on this Iwo Jima Silver Statue is based upon Joe Rosenthal’s Associated Press photograph of a group of six US Marines raising the American flag on the summit of the highest point on the island. Though the flag was raised, the battle to secure Iwo Jima and defeat pockets of Japanese resistance would continue.
Each of these 30 oz Iwo Jima Silver Statues has a brilliant antique finish. The addition of antique finishes to silver statues provides the patina of age, creating warmth in the appearance and added, subtle depth to the overall design.
