Colour of War is a very good documentary about WWII and how it affected life around the world between 1940 and 1945. The entire documentary is a collection of authentic images, all in colour, of which a lot have been previously unreleased. Some images can be quite shocking at times and no doubt leave you with a bitter impression on how horrible war can be. The commentator also reads out a lot of letters or diary fragments from people who lived or died during World War II. Knowing this, you might think that the documentary in a whole would loose coherence but it’s quite the opposite because even though “Colour of War” is mainly a collection of authentic images and letters it felt like everything fitted together very well.
About all the major events which happened during the period 1936-1945 are included. For example the German invansion in Poland and France, the bombing of London, Pearl Harbor, the confrontation between the American fleet and the German U-boats, Stalingrad, the American invasions of the Japanese islands, D-day, the Holocaust, Japanese Kamikazes, Hiroshima, … it’s all there.

A well done documentary. Just one question; Why have we always been shown black and white pictures if the original footage was coloured?
They weren’t .Some clever sob has found away to reflect the real colour from the different shades of Gray you find in black and white. Its done with a click of a button now. Clever and cool
Edit: now i have started watching the Doc i see why you ask. Its just the miss leading way the word it.
Must be a verrrry clever snob then. As little variables like light and shade diver constantly (ergo: the shades of gray), ‘one click of a button’ would be impossible I’d recon. Or it has to be a super-filter with built in A.I.
Very solid documentary
