This is an original Photograph from World War 2. Likely produced for propaganda and press use. Nothing printed to the back, but the following information is given; Picture Shows: Driving the Japs out of Changteh. Cameraman "newsreel" Wong was right on the heels of China's charging infantrymen as they stormed into the pulverised city of Changteh, heart of China's Rice Bowl, to inflict the most humiliating defeat the Japs have suffered in the China "incident". This city changed hands four times in forty days and less than two score of its ten thousand buildings remain undamaged. Only 300 of Marshal Chiang-Kai-Shek's heroic fifty-seventh division survived the battle, but the battle they won ranks with Stalingrad. Removed from an old scrapbook, so the back of the photograph has marks on the back, not affecting the front. Item Type: Photo. Quantity Available: 1. Category: War Photographs; Featured; Collectables. Inventory No: 232115.
