I used to collect old photos and once lucked upon a large collection of snapshots that belonged to a Navy Gunner’s Mate. This set of 22 original black and white photos from World War Two shows the destruction in Bizerte after the 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., British and Vichy French. On May 7, 1943, British armor entered Tunis, and American infantry entered Bizerte. They show buildings damaged in the Battle, after some initial clean up (to get tanks and other vehicles and troops through streets).
