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.
