Rare Color Photos from World War II

Due to costs and scarcity, the vast majority of photos captured during World War II were shot on black-and-white film. Some images were captured in color, however, and those rare shots reveal what scenes from the Second World War looked like to people in them.

Some really amazing images in this collection. These aren't "coloured in" photos either, they are proper colour images from the time, and they're really high quality too. The photos will be part of a new book on the war being released by the Imperial War Museum in the UK.
