    An extraordinary book on an American P51 Mustang fighter pilot, Captain Jerry Fellin who flew the last combat mission of World War II out of Iwo jima. From April-August, 1945, Captain Jerry Fellin and his fellow pilots flew dangerous bombing and strafting missions out of Iwo Jima over Japan. The pilots continued to fly missions days after the atomic bombings over Hiroshima and Nagasaki because the emperor refused to surrender.
