Along a jungle trail

“Along a jungle trail found this rugged boy (inf.) – he was Pvt. Art Neuer, machine gunner” – SGT. Howard Brodie “Yank” staff artist:


Description from the Library of Congress: Full-length portrait sketch of infantryman Art Neuer, his hand on his pistol, on a jungle trail during the World War II Battle of Guadalcanal.

Born in 1915, Brodie was a sports artist for the San Francisco Chronicle before his work during the war for Yank during which he was an Army combat artist– earning a bronze star the hard way. He went on to become noted for his courtroom sketches post-war but often returned overseas to draw combat scenes in Korea and Vietnam, passing at age 94.
