Images of Old Tibet: These photos were taken by U.S. military personnel during the period 1942-1943.

American soldiers arrived in Tibet from India to support the Chinese War of Resistance against Japanese forces. Qinghai Tibetans served in the Qinghai army against the Japanese. After the Japanese blocked the Burma Road in April 1942, the majority of allied supplies to China had to be delivered via airlift over the eastern part of the Himalayan Mountains known as the Hump. Flying over the mountains was extremely dangerous, but the airlift continued daily to August 1945, at great cost in men and aircraft.
