Orbetello Seaplane Base, 1944
Here we see the bombed out ruins of the Italian seaplane base at Orbetello, on the coast of Tuscany north of Rome. The town sits on a spit of land in the middle of a coastal lagoon, and the sea can be seen on both sides of this picture. The base fell to the US 5th Army on 16 June, during the advance north from Rome towards the Trasimeno Line.
