About This Lesson

After a bloody battle with Japan, U.S. forces gain control of the island of Iwo Jima in the Pacific Ocean, turning it into an important American airbase. From there, U.S. fighter pilot Jerry Yellin escorts bomber planes on long, dangerous raids to Japan in his North American P-51 Mustang with help from a primitive navigation system using Morse code.   “Chronicles of Courage: Stories of Wartime and Innovation” is a co-production of Vulcan Productions and NBC Learn.
