Meanwhile, across the Pacific, sailors, Marines and airmen teamed up to invade a series of crucial islands Tarawa, Iwo Jima, Okinawarolling back a tough Japanese enemy and paving the way for the surprising end of the war with the dropping of an atom bomb on Hiroshima. Every step of every day, these members of The Greatest Generation were shadowed by reporters and photographers from two great American magazines, Time and Life. Now, the editors of Time have returned to these archives to compile a memorable, visually stunning portrait of those stirring times, Americas Greatest Generation and Their World War II Triumph.
