Invasion of Morotai Island

Vehicles are water-proofed in preparation for an amphibious landing.

This is “asbestos grease.”

U.S. and Australian warships are involved in the attack on the island.

U.S. troops land almost unopposed.

Some vehicles end up getting bogged down despite the preparations.

MacArthur inspects the progress.
