Under the cover of darkness, partisans sabotage German boats with Kriegsmarine flags on both masts. One figure is holding a rifle and a built-up area is visible in the background.

Caption translates as: “August 1944. Marano Lagunare, sabotage operation in the Canale di S. Andrea by a local patriot. He sabotaged German ships during the night, making the on-board systems unusable and leaving the boats drifting with waves and currents. This way, they would be an easy prey for the aircraft flying over at dawn.”
