HIGH OVER ENIWETOK

The first Marines have landed on enemy-held Engesi island, part
of Eniwetok Atoll in the Marshall Islands group. This aerial photo
shows many beached landing craft unloading, while others are
shown dashing back to mother ships for more troops. U.S. Army
Signal Corps photo, dated March 2, 1944, from the
