Soldiers Guarding a Ship in Africa

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old Images

I ran across this image the other day.  It’s a surreal composition. The AP Photo is part of a collection of 45 pictures from Africa published on the Atlantic Monthly’s website.  View all the amazing photos here.

According to the caption, “A U.S. army soldier with a sub-machine gun and another in a jeep guard the looming S. S. Partos which was damaged and had capsized against the dock when the Allies landed at the North African port, in 1942. (AP Photo)”

    It seems that this collection of pics were taken during Operation Torch, the Allied landing at North Africa. A real cool set of pics! Thanks a lot, Dave.
