Back to the Philippines – GIs landing on Leyte thought the beaches looked much like others they’d seen. But they knew they were on the way to avenge our greatest military defeat. / By Sgt. Ozzie St. George

The Royal Marines at Walcheren. – As it was planned, it should have been a simple operation, but as it turned out it was one of the bloodiest actions for the British since Dieppe. At this spot, it was a Royal Marine show, and in spite of the Dutch windmills spotting the horizon, the entire action was more like an assault on a Pacific island. / By Tom Bernard Sp. (X) 1c, USNR

Yanks in the ETO. By Cpl. Frank Cady

Your Post-War Home – It will cost about $6,000 to buy or build a standard-construction house. If you wait a few years, you may get a prefabricated house for as little as $1,500. / By Sgt. Georg N. Meyers

The Line-Up for 1945

Seeing Rome – In Rome, Sgt. Donald Breimhurst, a U.S. Army photographer, took these pictures of GIs seeing the sights of the Eternal City. When Allied troops first moved into Rome, they didn’t have much time for tourist pleasures. Now that the war has gone North, the city has become a rest center for men on leave from other zones, GI rendezvous is U.S. Army Rest Center; in Mussolini’s time this was Fascist Youth Training Center.
