Unique collection of six vintage original matte-finish 4 x 3.25 snapshot photos from the Pacific Theater of World War II, one of which shows Maj. Gen. Kenneth F. Cramer receiving a sword from a Japanese officer during a surrender ceremony; the back of this photo is annotated: "This is the day we hit the jack pot: Genl. Cramer is accepting the sword in surrender of a Jap Navy Captain, his 17 officers and 360 men. The other officers are my ship's officers." Four of the other photos depict both American and Japanese soldiers, and one shows two ships (one of which appears to be sinking). In overall very good to fine condition, with some creasing, and old mounting remnants along the edges. Cramer commanded the 24th Infantry Division at the end of the war, and he received the Silver Star, Bronze Star Medal, and Air Medal for his service in WWII.
