Description:

Photograph of United States soldiers ambushing an enemy. The group of soldiers are aiming their rifles at their targets.

Note:

Other than a mound of sand and some greasewood bushes, the desert provided very little protection from any returning bullets. These men are using their Springfield M1903 rifles with bayonets thus indicating that the enemy was not too far away.
