Frank Leskovitz Sr. *** US Marines *** 1924 to 1949

While Frank's personal photographs might be few in number, nestled in his actual ShoeBox were 420 black& white photographs taken by U.S. Marine Combat Photographers from World War II. Bundled with elastic bands in series of 20 photos, they show a first hand accounting for the trials and endurance of the individual experiences during various island invasions during the South Pacific campaign. Because military Combat Photographer photographs do exist I include them. While I do not know how he acquired these photos, they so far have been the most extensive collection of this genre.
