Sniper Hunt
International News photo, dated September 20, 1944

Two U.S. GIs — one in a doorway, the other prone on the sidewalk — stalk a sniper on the streets of Brest, France. The GI in the doorway is armed with a captured German P-38 Walther pistol in one hand and a pineapple hand grenade in the other. They've probably located the sniper's nest, and are ready to take him out.
