The BAR Man
The Browning Automatic Rifle (BAR) was a favorite among Marines. Like the M-14 that would come after it, Marines were reluctant to give up such a fine weapon in favor of newer, lighter, ones. This action sequence by Col. Charles Waterhouse depicts a BAR gunner storming ashore on Iwo. The Marine is seen firing his weapon at an unseen assailant amidst the visible remnants of machine gun fire and a battle-worn stretch of beach.
