U.S. marines ot the 9th Marine Regiment, operating from the 4th Marine Division's zone of action, during later phase of the battle for Iwo Jima in World War 2. (Their mission is to sweep the last hostile troops from the ridge in the southeast corner of the 3rd Marine Division's zone of operation.) They move cautiously along extremely rough terrain on the ridge, to flush out any remaining pockets of Japanese resistance. A marine carefully scouts an area of large boulders and potential Japanese hiding places. Another marine is seen silhouetted atop the ridgeline. A marine hurries down from the ridge after placing a demolition charge. He hunkers down with several other marines sheltered just below the ridge as the demolition charge explodes raising brown smoke followed by white smoke. The marines then stand and cautiously approach the ridge.
