Wwii: Lost Color Archives

Overview

When most people recall the events of World War II, they find themselves thinking of the black-and-white newsreel footage and combat photography that documented most of the important European battles. What a lot of people don't know is that many of the major events of the war were also captured on color film; much of this rare footage was thought to be lost, but a recent find in a film archive has brought this material back into the public view.

Overview

When most people recall the events of World War II, they find themselves thinking of the black-and-white newsreel footage and combat photography that documented most of the important European battles. What a lot of people don't know is that many of the major events of the war were also captured on color film; much of this rare footage was thought to be lost, but a recent find in a film archive has brought this material back into the public view. WW II: The Lost Color Archives is a three-part documentary produced by the cable-television outlet The History Channel, which combines this rare color newsreel footage with home movies shot by both American and European forces to offer a new and vivid look at the war. Part one, "New World Order, focuses on the Nazi sweep through Europe starting in 1937. "Total War" documents the war at its height after America joined the conflict following the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. "Triumph and Despair" closes out the series with the march of Allied forces through Europe, the bombing of Hiroshima, and the revelations of Nazi war atrocities after the fall of the Third Reich.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Gregory Baird
World War II comes startlingly alive in the three-part History Channel documentary, WWII The Lost Color Archives (originally aired as WWI In Color). Consisting exclusively of rare color film shot during World War II, some of which was discovered in the '80s by British film researcher Adrian Wood, the documentary covers the entire conflict, from prewar Nazi rallies to VJ Day. Footage by combat cameramen, by amateur filmmakers, and even home movies of Hitler's mistress, Eva Braun, combine in a vivid collage, with the color film giving a haunting immediacy to an era that, for most of us, exists in only black and white. The documentary also uses letters and diaries of participants on both sides -- young and old, soldiers and civilians -- to present a kaleidoscope of perspectives on the war. Effectively performed by actors in voice-over, these readings are occasionally chilling, and often heartrending, a poignant complement to these unforgettable images.
