It's WWII, you're an American soldier, and you've got to pick one. Normandy or Iwo Jima?
You're a young man and have a terrible choice to make. Join the invasion team for Normandy or the invasion team for Iwo Jima?
You've seen all the movies. Saving Private Ryan, The Longest Day, Flags of Our Fathers, The Pacific, etc. It's safe to say there's no winning -- merely the possibility of losing less. For one, you're facing a intensely mechanized force firing on you the instant your landing craft gets close. For the other, you may be able to get on the beach quietly, but once there it's intense combat against an entrenched force that will, almost literally, fight to the last man.
It's a dreadful choice. Which team do you join?
