The Marine Corps is sending the rare stockpile of films to photo specialists in South Carolina. Some of the images have been in storage for 70 years and offer viewers a gritty ‘you-were-there’ view of military life. Most of them were not even seen by the combat photographers who shot them with hand-held cameras from the late 1930s through the Second World War, Korean and Vietnam War.
The phots depict storied events such as United States Marines Corps wading through the tide at Guadalcanal, the wounded being evacuated from Iwo Jima and Marines tramping single-file through the hillsides after the Chinese tried to wipe out the 1st Marine Division at the Chosin Reservoir.
The stunning photo gallery for sure will be great addition to US Military history and best showcase for future generations. Take a look:
