This is a photo of the island of Ie Shima before World War 2.  The Japanese Air Force used it as their forward attack base as they took the islands in the Pacific and Southeast Asia.  Later, the United States needed a base for our P-47 thunderbolt fighters that was close enough to Japan to escort the much longer range B-29 Super Fortresses and the B-24 Liberators as they flew missions to bomb Japan.
