From Our Editors

While some gun-toting soldiers shot down enemy lines, Thayer Soule`s unit shot them with cameras. During the Second World War, Soule led the very first Marine Corps photographic unit in the quest for honest, vivid and poignant images of what was happening overseas. For many North Americans and people in other unaffected areas of the world, these photos are the only means of knowing what took place on the other side of the planet. Discover close-up images of generals and privates, maps and stark visions of the battle field in Shooting the Pacific War.
