A Photographic Chronicle of Darby's Rangers
Enclosed are some of best pictures that we have seen of the war. They were taken by Staff Sergeant Phil Stern, a combat veteran with Darby's Rangers who also doubled as their photographer. After the war, Stern was employed as freelance photographer.

Memories from the Pacific - an exclusive 21 page Photo Album detailing an Infantry Platoon's action from Australia to Corregidor. Taken by members of B Co. 503rd RCT.  One of the best WWII scrapbooks we've seen.

Normandy in Photos  An incredible, unpublished and very rare photo collection taken by Joe Pangerl of the 502 PIR through the lens of a captured German camera while he was in  Normandy.


A Ranger's Photo Album  An unpublished photo collection taken by Frank DiFilippo of the 5th Rangers.  Editors note: I encourage members of the 5th Rangers to provide additional comments on places and names of individuals depicted in the photos. Additional photos of course are always welcome.

 

Negros- The Last Campaign   An unpublished photo collection taken by Sherman Durham. The photos capture life on Negros, the 503 RCT's last campaign in the Philippines. Editors note: I encourage members of the 503rd to provide additional comments on places and names.
