Found Photos: World War II US Navy Landing at Bizerte, Tunisia

A set of four original black and white photos from World War Two showing US troops preparing to land at 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 consisting primarily of U.S. and British. 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.
