Found Photos: World War II Weapons in Bizerte, Tunisia

A set of 11 original black and white photos from World War Two showing unexploded US and enemy bombs/abandoned weapons around the city of Bizerte after The Tunisia Campaign. The Tunisia Campaign was a series of World War II battles that took place in Tunisia in the North African Campaign of World War II, between forces of the German/Italian Axis, and allied forces. On May 7, 1943, British armor entered Tunis, and American infantry entered Bizerte. These photos are from a collection that belonged to a Navy Gunner’s Mate.
