Tony, who is now 95, went on to become one of the most sought-after photographers of his day.  In this film Tony shares his unique World War II story and his photographs.
Underfire was directed by Max Lewkowica.  The Executive Producer is Tim Van Patten (director of Game of Thrones, Sopranos, and Boardwalk Empire).
