World War II, thousands of men and women fighting and working to win one of the largest conflicts the world has ever seen. The greatest generation did amazing things. Of course, most of us have not seen images in color of these great events.
While the black and white images we have all grown up with are amazing, they really do not capture the complete feel of the time.
Fortunately for us all, some color images do exist. We have Alfred Palmer and Howard Hollem to thank for that. I highly recommend you check out the images in their full color kodachrome goodness here!
