    Description

    Iwo Jima: A Unique Large Version of Joe Rosenthal's Iconic Flag-Raising Photo Signed by Fifty-Six Officers Present at the Epic Battle.
    At a 1964 reunion this dramatic 21" x 28" blow-up (photo enlargement) of Rosenthal's image was autographed by veterans of Iwo Jima, all officers. Each signed in black ink and the autographs are uniformly clear and bold. The photo is in exceptional condition in what appears to be its original frame. A one-of-a-kind display item from one of the war's bloodiest engagements. We include a list of the signers (subject to spelling errors) in the extended description.
