Charcoal and oil (possibly also pastel and watercolor) painting of fighting on a Sunday morning at Cunel in France. Depicted are two American soldiers sheltering behind an embankment in the woods. The soldier in the background is wearing a camouflaged helmet and uniform and is lying on his stomach aiming his rifle (probably an M1903 Springfield). The soldier in the foreground is wounded with bloody bandages on his arm. He is lying on his side next to the second soldier. His rifle is lying on the hill to his left. In the distance at right are vague outlines of more soldiers moving through the woods. Signed by the artist at bottom right, "Harvey Dunn, AEF"
