NA_573.jpg

Description:After 23 days of combat, men are foot sore and weary after fighting in the rain and mud. These Marines trek for a less active area on Cape Gloucester as a Jeep hauls one of their smaller field pieces. It was hell on earth in the front lines but more so for the Japanese than the Marines. (National Archives, Defense Dept., USMC 71,989).
