Yasha At War

Written by: George Chittenden : 07 Mar 2020

This pretty famous photograph certainly grabs attention. It was taken by Ukrainian-born photojournalist Yevgeny Khaldei, who is famous for his photograph of the red flag above the Reichstag. The reindeer was named Yasha and the photo was taken in 1941 during the German offensive to capture Murmansk, and the mission’s codename was Operation Reindeer, and that isn’t a coincidence.

The truth is that this photo isn’t completely natural. In truth the reindeer in the phot came out to be with the troops as it was scared during one of the air raids and Yevgeny Khaldei took this shot, however on reflection the photographer didn’t think the image was that dramatic so he superimposed British Hawker Hurricanes and an exploding bomb to form a composite image.
