In this image, Jack Baker can be seen treating a captured German soldier. It is believed that this image was taken in Southern France – possibly near Baie de Cavalaire. Although the exact date isn’t known, it is likely that the event took place from August 15, 1944 to September 10, 1944. This image was taken by Dale Rooks, and may have been featured in a news magazine at the time.
About John Baker’s Warbook
The Warbook is a collection of approximately 150 original photographs taken during World War II revolving around the travels of Coast Guard cutter USS Duane. This book was compiled by my grandfather John Baker, who is the subject of many photos. Each image and caption from the book will be sequentially posted on this blog, along with other historical research when possible.
