James Bradley talked about his book Flags of Our Fathers, published by Bantam Books. The book chronicles the lives of the six U.S. Marines who raised the American flag over Mount Surabachi on Iwo Jima, memorialized in the famous photograph by Joe Rosenthal. Mr. Bradley is the son of one of the flag raisers, John “Doc” Bradley, and interviewed many of the other flag raisers' family members in the course of writing the book. Video images of the Iwo Jima Memorial statue were shown as the men were discussed. close
