You are bathing in misery and hope, waiting for someone to come and pull the plug.

Caption says it was captured in Tunisia, I think the photo was taken somewhere in Europe (based on their clothing). Perhaps they shipped it back after their retreat from Africa.

Yes, it's very muddy, which throws me off at first. I never really think about mud when I think about North Africa, even though it played a large factor in that theater.
