Catalogue Note

'To me, watching them wind through the storm, it seemed much like seeing some of the famous old war paintings come to life, during the early battles across Europe' (David Douglas Duncan, quoted in LIFE, 1949, p. 67). 

The early photograph offered here is believed to be the largest print of this image to appear at auction.  A print of it was selected by Edward Steichen for the 1951 Museum of Modern Art exhibition Memorable Life Photographs and it is illustrated in the accompanying catalogue.
