Australian soldier mans U.S. tank in Buna, New Guinea



A member of an Australian tank crew awaits the signal for further attack from the hatch of a camouflaged American tank. American and Australian soldiers collaborated to drive back the Japanese attack in New Guinea, officially securing Buna in 1942. Fighting continued into 1943, however, when this picture was taken.
