Iconic Life Magazine, August 14, 1944 – Airborne infantry officer in Normandy
A Iconic edition of LIFE magazine. The tough, haggard man on the cover is one of the thousands who are winning the battle for France. He is Lt. Kelso C. Horne of the U.S. airborne infantry. Men like Lt. Horne saw their hardest fighting on June 6, when many of them were landed behind German lines in Normandy with parachute troops. In the great breakthrough in France, airborne troops are probably being used as infantry shock troops. The picture on the front is one of the most iconic images of the war. The magazine is in good and complete condition. A true ICON for any Airbornecollection!
