Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

'There is an air of expectant calm; no evidence of artillery fire or shot and shell, just a scene that suggests a successful landing . . . all of that would change by the afternoon, and the keen young men in these photographs would end the day fighting for their lives.'

--Christopher Pugsley
