Title

Battle of the Espero convoy. Part 4

Description

The destroyer Espero is sinking rapidly in a rough sea. Its stern is raised high into the air, exposing the rudder and propeller, whilst the bow is already submerged. Flames and smoke are engulfing the bridge. A lifeboat with survivors is visible on the left.

Label reads “10”; signed by the author; caption reads “(4) … l’Espero gravemente colpito, s’inchina paurosamente sù un fianco, e comincia il suo drama che doveva diventare leggendario nelle storie dei naufragi di guerra, quel drama, da cui 6 uomini soltanto, scamperanno per raccontarlo…”
