World War II in Color

"For so many years, historians and casual observers alike have observed the events of World War II through faded black and white images. What most people do not know is the fact that quite a large portion of the WWII was shot using color film! However, it wasn't until recently that a lot of the photographs and motion picture footage was de-classified by the U.S. Government."

Really slick! Amazing photos!! Here are a few to give you an idea.

"DUKW comes ashore at Anzio"

"American Soldier with flags"
