Eastwood Films Offer Two Perspecives on Iwo Jima

Hosted by

Clint Eastwood's film, Flags of Our Fathers, dramatizes the battle for the island of Iwo Jima in World War II.  American soldiers throw grenades and shoot flames into the openings of tunnels dug into Mount Suribachi, where Japanese soldiers have dug in.  Now Eastwood has released a second film, Letters from Iwo Jima, and it's told from the point of view of those Japanese soldiers.
