Colour photography was a rare thing in the 1930s. Various systems of colour photography had been tried, including Dufaycolour and Kodachrome but the processes were time consuming and difficult to process. The Germans had developed Agfacolor, which was state of the art for the time and easily processed with basic chemicals and equipment in rudimentary darkrooms close to the front. Sending propaganda units with the troops, and war correspondents armed with colour film and Leica cameras, the photographs captured the horror of war in colour for the first time. Here, over 70 colour and 70 black and white images tell the story of the Blitzkrieg as it happened, with immediacy that only action shots can portray.

Though World War II took place after the development of color photography, nearly all of the familiar images of it are in black and white--which tends to make the conflict feel more distant, more removed from our own lives and history, than it actually is. War in the Air changes that. Following the success of IWM's The Second World War in Colour, this book focuses on an aspect of the war that was unquestionably key to the Allied victory: the war in the air. In these pages, we see aircraft and pilots from a number Allied nations, brought to life again in vibrant color that makes the heroism and sacrifice of the era more palpable than ever. Alongside these rarely seen images, Ian Carter, Senior Curator at IWM, examines how crucial aviation was to winning the war, from protecting the skies and waters of Britain and the Mediterranean to the roles of Bomber Command and the USAAF's night-time strikes over Germany. Offering perspectives from the ground and from the air, these powerful images are an incredible document of World War II.

For those of us who didn't live through World War II, it appears in our mind's eye in black and white. Images of the Blitz, of the D-Day landings at Normandy, the liberation of Paris, the fall of Berlin--all come to us in shadowy grays and blacks, the lack of color simultaneously heightening their drama and distancing them from us. Seen in black and white, World War II seems wholly of the past, a story that's being told much more than an experienced that men and women actually lived through. ‚ÄčThis book will help change that. Reproducing seventy-eight rare full-color images from the archives of the Imperial War Museums, it shows us a new--or at least long-forgotten--World War II. In these pages, we see the vivid hues of flames, the richly colored fabrics of flags and uniforms, intense blue skies high over battlefields, faces of suntanned soldiers on the march, and the dizzyingly complicated color of the new art of military camouflage. The result is a World War II that has been rescued from the past and restored to us, powerful and unforgettable, so we can see for the first time what our parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents saw as they fought and sacrificed all those decades ago.

The publishers of Britain at War in Colour, America at War in Color and the Imperial War Museum's Second World War in Photographs have scoured the world's archives to find over 250 startling colour images of the Third Reich. These powerful photographs show for the first time how wartime forces and civilians really looked. There are photographs of the rise of Nazism, scenes of life on the homefront, and harrowing images of death, destruction and the Holocaust, sharply contrasted with the Wehrmacht celebrating their early victories in Europe and Russia. The colour pictures bring an added dimension to the scenes of war, making them more 'real' to modern readers than black and white shots. Germany at War shows you how the war really looked to those who were actually there and goes far beyond the familiar, presenting images that have never been seen before. It is both a unique record of this massive conflict and a reminder to today's generations of the rise of fascism and the horror and devastating cost of global conflict.

Color photography was still in its infancy in 1939. With the outbreak of war against Germany, the short supply of color film stock made color photographs even more rare. But some were taken and a few of them have survived. Most of these images have remained unseen for decades. But the producers of the ITV series Britain at War in Colour scoured the archives to unearth a remarkable collection of startling color images for this book. These photographs are presented with a brief outline of the events surrounding them and illuminate a unique selection of personal accounts of the war. Intimate letters and diaries of service men and women civilians and war-time leaders tell the story of the British experience of war. The personal memories tell the reality of war-time Britain: a time when Britain stood alone; a time of danger and hope. The powerful photographs show the reality of war-time Britain: a nation with a purpose; a people with a will to win. Britain at War in Colour is a unique account of Britain during the Second World War.

`We Can Take It!' shows that the British remember the war in a peculiar way, thanks to a mix of particular images and evidence. Our memory has been shaped by material which is completely removed from historical reality. These images (including complete inventions) have combined to make a new history. The vision is mostly cosy and suits the way in which the Britons conceive of themselves: dogged, good humoured, occasionally bumbling, unified and enjoying diversity. In fact Britons load their memory towards the early part of the war (Dunkirk, Blitz, Battle of Britain) rather than when we were successful in the air or against Italy and Germany with invasions. This suits our love of being the underdog, fighting against the odds, and being in a crisis. Conversely, the periods of the war during which Britain was in the ascendant are, perversely, far more hazy in the public memory.
