This work was painted from the police post near Metulla and shows the vastness of the surrounding countryside. In the distance on the far left the barracks at Merdjayoun can be seen atop a hill. To the right on a hill is Fort Khiam. These were both important points in the 7th Division's advance towards Beirut. These two high points create the valley leading to the distant mountains.
