Allied prisoners of war carry comrades in slings in Philippines
Allied prisoners of war in the Phillipines carry fallen comrades in imporovised slings, possibly taken a few weeks after the famed Bataan Death March. Note: This image was thought for many years to depict the march itself, but information in the 21st century has led to the correction. Original U.S. military caption: "This picture, captured from the Japanese, shows American prisoners using improvised litters to carry those of their comrades who, from the lack of food or water on the march from Bataan, fell along the road. Philippines, May 1942."
