Namur Island, Kwajalein Atoll
Namur Island, Kwajalein Atoll, photographed from a U.S. aircraft on 30 January 1944, before it was wrecked by pre-invasion bombardment. Note the many buildings and the pier (with a "hammerhead" crane) of the Japanese base there. Roi Island is in the far upper left. Virtually everything seen here was destroyed in the next few days.
