If you are referring to "the" bombs, it sounds like you're referring to the two "Atomic" bombs that were dropped on the city of Hiroshima on 06 August 1945, and Nagasaki on 09 August 1945, thus ending WWII. If your referring to the Battle of Iwo Jima (where the US flag was raised), bombs and naval guns pounded that whole island.
