The Fall of Sicily in Pictures and Front Line Stories. ……. Cover : Sighting The Axis ….. Sgt. Pete Paris, YANK staff photographer, snapped this picture of an artilleryman in the 1st Division near Troina, where those veterans from Tunisia fought one of the toughest engagements of the Sicilian campaign. The soldier is squinting through an aiming circle to make sure it is okay before setting it up for the executive officer to lay the guns in the battery. U. S. artillery did a great job in Sicily.
