"Stunning . . . The photos shown in this new book allow us to
travel back in time and see things as they really
"When most people think of photography from both world wars, they think of black and white images. There were a few color images made during the Great War and thousands (including many motion pictures) were taken during World War II, but they don't often make it into print....This book should especially appeal to World War II buffs, especially to those who have rarely seen such striking color images of that conflict. The book is highly recommended."--Journal of America's Military Past
