There are two reasons why America wanted to capture Iwo Jima. There were two airstrips on Iwo Jima and the Americans could use those to land broken B-29's that needed repairing. The other reason is that If the Americans are going to bomb japan, Iwo Jima would inform the main land of Japan and form a counter-strike. It was mandatory for the americans to take Iwo Jima, because if they didn't Hiroshima and Nagasaki would have been failures.
The Americans and Allied Forces won the battle of Iwo Jima and most of the battles to take back the islands on the island hopping campaign.
