    These snaps are awfully small, I can barely see them.

    Anyway....here's a shot of a US Marine giving a cigarette to a Japanese soldier buried in the sand on Iwo Jima in '45



    He was the first POW taken on Iwo Jima. He had managed to play dead for a day and a half in a shell crater that the Marines were using as a foxhole for a day and a half. Apparently, a grenade landed close to his hand and he knocked it away, giving up his game. He surrendered and was lifted out on a stretcher.



    There's more on his story here for those interested...
