The Second World War in Colour illustrates the most destructive war in history through rare colour photographs from IWM's unparalleled archive. The vivid hues of flames and fabrics, the intense blue skies, the sun-tanned faces and the myriad colours of military camouflage bring an immediacy rarely felt through black and white photography. Striking and powerful, these images take away its remoteness and bring the Second World War to life.

"Stunning . . . The photos shown in this new book allow us to travel back in time and see things as they really were."-- "Gizmodo" "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"
