Cover Story

Recognise this image?



The photo I picked up and used in my book is in fact the actual original from the magazine - I just had to use it on the cover when I discovered this. The last page in the book shows the photo's reverse with comments from the time and a cut out from the inside of a printed mag.

The Yank Magazine was produced weekly and aimed at the troops. There were different editions for each theatre, this cover was for a US edition in Sept 44. Anyone interested in the contents can find them here along with lots of others:
