Military Photo of the Day: Barbed Wire Doesn’t Slow Down Marines

By Shannon Henderson Published on November 18, 2018

Marines Run Around Barbed Wire, Tarawa, November 1943

“Barbed Wire Doesn’t Stop Them-A Marine with fixed bayonet leads others around a barbed wire entanglement on the beach at Tarawa as the Marines took the island. Grim determination is etched on the leader’s face as he carries his rifle in the crook of his arm instead of in his wounded hand.”

From the Julian C. Smith Collection (COLL/202), Marine Corps Archives & Special Collections
