The Pacific in Pictures

Jen passed this on FaceBook last night and thought some of my photographer, and non-photographer, friends of mine would enjoy this.

A history of WWII in the Pacific through photos.   Given photo technology in the 1940's seeing these images shot on a battlefield (and some in colour) is amazing.  It's a wonder some of these moments were captured at all.   I have always wondered how horrifying and how intense it must be to try and capture images on the field of battle.

Anyhow, some of these are very famous photos that you will recognize while others will make you go wow.  But throughout keep the photographers point of view in your head, what they went through to take this pictures;
