That is a very impressive picture. Look at it long enough and it seems to come alive. You can almost hear the rounds zooming overhead.
Now I dont want to by any means belittle the jobs of the soldiers, but being a War Reporter I think has got to be one of the hardest roles to play on the battle field right?
I cant imagine trying to ignore the surrounding blaze of firing to get the perfect angle for a picture:cry:
Hey, what about the pics taken at Iwo Jima by Joe Rosenthal. What do you think about it? It is one of the most enduring images of WWII.
Agree Indiescribe, the picture of the flag been raised on Iwo Jima is renowned world wide for the taking of this Island, Dave's picture is renowned for D-Day, two great pictures .. :thumb:
Yes I would say that the Mount Suribachi pic is certainly iconic. And I believe is also now a statue in Washington ?
That photo always reminds me of Ira Hayes and the song by Peter LaFarge, The Ballad of Ira Hayes.
