Marines and their vehicles make their way along an ice-covered dirt road, while wind blows snow around a them.

"The wind that blew from the north--from Manchuria and the Siberian steppes beyond--down over the Yalu and the mountains all around . . . down along the ice-capped road--now shrieking and wild--that wind was like nothing ever known by the trapped Marines, yet they had to march through it. [Korea, December 1950.]" This Is War!, p. 143.
