WWII as seen by the men who were actually there. During WWII American soldier Tony Vaccaro smuggled his camera into action along with his rifle. 'Underfire' reveals these rarely seen images as he fought with the allies across France and into Germany. In doing so he was able to create one of the most comprehensive and intimate records of one of the darkest periods of world history.
Amateur Photographer D day to Germany
- Underfire review by IanF
Some very moving, often real action pictures taken with an early 35mm that could be hidden under his GI uniform. Amazing that they have just come to light. Some touching reunions with people he had not seen since the liberation, when he travelled back to Europe half a lifetime later. No wonder the photographer became a top fashion photographer in New York, long after the war ended. He never did 'news photographs' again.
