Schreiber:Back the Attack 1943. As his buddies land, a paratrooper is pictured securing the LZ with his Thompson submachine gun. The main paratroop drop of 1943 was part of Operation Husky, the invasion of Sicily. High winds forced the 1st British and 82nd Airborne off target; scattering the troopers over widely scattered area creating a near-disaster. White parachutes were reserved for troopers, colored chutes were supply drops. Now scarce. 28×20 near mint, conservation backed.
