What according to you is The Greatest Battle? I was first wave on green beach at Iwo Jima and so far much of what really happened is pure fabrication. The book Iwo Jima by Marling and Wetenhall is the only FACTUAL book and give the God's Gospel Truth.

The Greatest Battle in the news article refers to the title of the book and not necessarily my opinion on what the greatest WW2 battle is. With that said, I don't think I really know if anyone can justifiably say what the greatest battle is, for every battle, however small in scale or remote in location, affected the overall outcome of the war. A sailor of the Merchant Marines should feel as proud as someone who stormed the beach at Tarawa, because both contributed greatly to the eventual victory of their country.
