Very nice AP press photo dated 1943. One cool aspect of this one is he cover page which warns CAUTION! WATCH RELEASE DATE! Very cloak-and-dagger. This was taken during one of the Russian winter offensives of early 1943 near Veronezh. The tank is advancing past anti-tank gunners dug into the snow. Russian infantry can be seen riding on the back. A popular tactic was for Russian infantry to ride piggy back until contact was made after which the infantry would dismount and advance with the armor offering mutual support. Terrific picture but with the tank removed does it not look like the rebel base on Hoth at the beginning of the Empire Strikes Back? About 8.5x6.5 inches.
