Great AP press photo titled End Of A Tank. This is from July 1943. The AP description explains this was a German press photo obtained through a neutral country and reports that a German soldier placed explosive charge between turret and tank body. The turret was blown off and sits upside down in the snow beside the still burning hull. This is a brave act bordering on suicidal but was actually considered almost routine for well trained and disciplined German infantry. About 8 1/4 x 6 1/2 inches.
