7th Division Veterans Compare Three Campaigns

Cover: Leyte Mud

Mudder. This GI ploughing through the mud on Leyte in the Philippines was lucky enough to have a pair of knee-length boots. He needed ’em. But most of the infantry slugged their way across the island in regular GIs. It was mud like this from the great November rains that helped make Leyte one of the tough campaigns of the Pacific. / Photo by Sgt. Dick Hanley
