Operation Torch (invasion of North Africa) during World War 2. View from stern of a British warship underway with setting sun behind. Several British sailors help a shipmate untangle himself from lines on the deck of ship. British, Free French, and American sailors line up for inspection on shore. A British launch, flying a white ensign, approaches and docks at Casablanca. The Allied Commanders of Operation Torch disembark. General Dwight D. Eisenhower (wearing 4 stars) is followed by British Admiral Sir Andrew Cunningham, Allied Naval Commander of the Expeditionary Force (carrying a cane on his arm), and his deputy, Vice-Admiral Sir Bertram Ramsay, who planned the ground effort. Eisenhower pauses to greet American Naval officers (and he stumbles on pier planking). Eisenhower, Cunningham, and Ramsay, then enter a staff car and drive away.
