|One Down, Two to Go
It's 3 September 1943, and Corporal Paul F. Janesk, of Antrim, Pennsylvania, shows off his jeep "Shortstop" somewhere in the Sicilian countryside. Outfitted with caricatures of Axis leaders Mussolini, Hitler, and Tojo (left to right), the face of Italian dictator Mussolini has been crossed out ("Il Duce," as he was called, had been deposed back on 25 July). From the Webmaster's collection.
