World War II History: Rare One Man Nazi Sub Photograph

In the below 1944 photo, colorized by Marina Amaral, US Army troops examine a one-man submarine that washed up on the Anzio beachhead in Italy.

According to The National World War II Museum, the submarine was converted from a torpedo, with the warhead chamber replaced with a cockpit.

US troops captured the 17-year-old Nazi pilot when the beached unterseeboot, or U-boat, was found in April 1944.
