I saw the film Flags of Our Fathers (2005), directed by Clint Eastwood. How authentic the film is I can't say!

Interest in buying war bonds to finance the war was flagging because many Americans believed the war couldn't be won. From what I remember, the raising of the flag was a Propaganda exercise to show the people the war was being won, but there were 'inaccuracies' in the reporting of the event.

I believe the propaganda campaign had the desired effect!
