Additional Information

Label to reverse reads: ‘BRA 708995 WP.... New York Bureau / Before and after the shelling #2 Lagone Italy: This is an Italian battle scene, photographed in the bright of a full moon, and probably the first of its kind to be photographed. Peaceful Lagone, nestled in the hills and in the path of the fifth army advance, containing a unit of the German winter line in southern Italy, is shelled by American artillery. Brilliant lighting from bursting shells light up the buildings. To the rear and left, German positions are also being shelled, preliminary to an infantry attack. The picture was made with a 12-minute exposure at f6.3 with a 15-inch telephoto lens. (See BRA 708994) Full credit line (Acme Photo by Bert Brandt, War Pool Correspondent) 1/4/44 (MR).’
