A great collection of photos, makes it seem like the war could have happened in our lifetime.

I prefer these original colour photos, to the trend of 'colorizing' old Black and white photos and film.

Usually when colour photography during WW2 is mentioned, you expect either the Germans (particularly though the medium of the magazine Signal) or the Americans. However, the vast majority (if not the whole lot) of the photographs here are clearly taken by the Brits. Some excellent shots, both from a historical perspective and a modelling one.
