"An extraordinary collection of rare colour photographs shed new light on World War II" --The Australian
"The scarcity of colour film and the high cost of reproducing it in printed publications during the Second World War means that, for most people today, the war is a black and white conflict. But the pictures in the book The Second World War in Colour bring it vividly to life with images that look as if they were taken yesterday or come from a film set.
They range from the Women s Auxiliary Air Force preparing parachutes for use during the invasion of Europe to shots of troops in training, stationed in Italy and Tunisia, and sightseeing in Greece." --The Sun
