Japanese troops have overrun a Chinese gun emplacement, with dying Chinese lying piled up on the ground next to the weapons. Several Japanese take aim at the remaining enemies, who attempt to flee by climbing over the earthworks at right. Two puffs of smoke float in the night air, and two Chinese tumble backwards in midair after being hit. Misty clouds drift across the night sky with a full moon glowing overhead. A dramatic and memorable image with an atmospheric setting and fine bokashi shading.
