Comments - Dramatic depiction of fighting in the street during the Sino-Japanese War. Japanese soldiers rush forward at left to meet the enemy, who stand their ground at right, firing upon the troops. Bullets fly through the air and two Chinese tumble to the ground as a Japanese thrusts his bayonet at one. Chinese snipers fire down at the attackers from the upper story windows of the buildings at left, a pair of shutters falling onto the tile rooftop below. An unusual depiction of fighting in close quarters during this historic conflict.
