600 feet at Takrouna - a comparison familiar to B Company
Just how high is 600 feet?
Well, for the men from B Company the height can be compared to the height of Mokoia Island in the middle of Lake Rotorua, New Zealand. When you look at the cliffs of Takrouna, the sheer strength, determination and bravery that it took to scale them is staggering to the imagination.
No doubt the muscular endurance and power in Haane Manahi's shoulders from being a champion swimmer contributed to him being able to acheive such a climbing feat while under fire from the enemy.
