feb 19, 1945 - Battle of Iwo Jima
The Battle of Iwo Jima was a big turning point in WWII. This is because U.S. Marines landed on the island of Iwo Jima and believed that it could be captured. The Japanese had dug tunnels all around the island and the U.S. had to flush them out. Finally the island fell in March.
