Island of Terror Graphic Novel by Hama/Erskine/Williams
A fabulous book, published by the military history publishers Osprey. Large format (A4 size) this is a graphic novel of the story of the Battle of Iwo Jima (1944) in WW2. The Battle of Iwo Jima iwas an important victory for the Alies as they tightened the stranglehold on Japan, to help decide the outcome of the War in the Far East. Accompanied by pages of historical background, photos of key figures, campaign maps etc. this is an incredible educational resource. It's so much more than just a "comic," it provides an accesible version of history in an easy to understand, easy to follow way, alongside more in depth and educational material that provides the extra material young readers and students will be looking for. It educates as it entertains. The people behind the book have experience with Marvel Comics, 2000AD, Dark Horse and other famous comic publishers. With free fold-out colour poster (circa A2 size) of the cover artwork. NB: Look out for our Iwo Jima flag and other US and Japanese military flags in the For Warriors Only section.
