First convoy chugs down the Stilwell Road by Frank Cancellare( Visual )

1 edition published in 1945 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Scene of furious battles with nature, as well as the Japs, and the product of Allied blood, toil and determination, the Burma-Ledo highway is open again. As a tribute to General Joseph W. Stilwell, who planned the artery and almost saw it completed before his recall from China, the 620-mile highway has been officially named the Stilwell Road. Stretching across monsoon-swollen rivers, steep hills, and fever-infested jungles to bring supplies to China, the Stilwell Road has become the main artery from which new blows against japan will soon be delivered. These pictures show the first China-bound convoy to travel over the Stilwell Road since the Jap invasion of Burma in 1942. Kunming, China, 1000 miles from the starting point, Ledo, is the final destination of the convoy. The convoy is composed of by Chinese and American white and Negro soliders. Two of the drivers are: Cpl Edgar Moore (left), Dodge City, Kansas, and Sgt Chang Bai-Chen, China. Photo by Frank Cancellare, Acme photographer for the War Picture Pool."
