Potholes on Iwo Jima WW2

February 1945: The booted feet of a dead Japanese soldier, foreground, protrude from beneath a mound of earth on Iwo Jima during the American invasion of the Japanese Volcano Island stronghold in World War II. U.S. Marines can be seen nearby in foxholes. Having watched the "Pacific" mini series this photo looks very familiar. Soldiers dug into craters, holes, side of the hill etc. Dead bodies everywhere.
