The World War II Photo of the Week
for 4 October 1999


CAPTURED 88 (21 K)

Finally Silenced

Two GIs pose with a German 88 antiaircraft gun. Long the scourge of the ETO, in 1944-45 the Allies began over-running German positions and got their first close-up looks at what will be remembered as one of history's most awesome artillery pieces. Photo from the Webmaster's collection.
