Dramatic depiction of the attack at Tienchuangtai (Denshodai) during the Sino-Japanese War. Gusts of wind and snow slash across the scene in dynamic, embossed diagonal lines, driving over the troops huddled behind a barrier of brush wood. The men are wrapped in heavy coats and hoods, with mufflers covering the bottoms of their faces as they crouch in wait. The silhouettes of fluttering flags can be seen at far left.
