The last major eruption of Vesuvius happened nearly 70 years ago, in the midst of World War II — and was photographed by the great British photographer and Magnum founder member, George Rodger. At the time of the eruption, the USAAF 340th Bombardment Group was based at Pompeii Airfield near Terzigno, Italy, just a few kilometers from the eastern base of the mountain.
