When the bombing campaign against Japan was started, it was soon apparent that we would suffer significant losses due to weather, battle damage, mechanical failure, and bad navigation. A lot of aircraft could not make it back to base due to lack of fuel.
Iwo Jima was taken to provide for an emergency landing strip. Many crews owed their lives to the Marines who took this island.
