Colour photography was still in its infancy in 1939. With the outbreak of war against Germany, the short supply of colour film stock made colour photographs even more rare. But some were taken and a few of them have survived. Most of these images have remained unseen for decades. But the producers of the ITV series "Britain at War in Colour" scoured the archives to unearth a remarkable collection of startling colour images for this book. These photographs are presented with a brief outline of the events surrounding them and illuminate a unique selection of personal accounts of the war. Intimate letters and diaries of service men and women civilians and war-time leaders tell the story of the British experience of war. The personal memories tell the reality of war-time Britain: a time when Britain stood alone; a time of danger and hope. The powerful photographs show the reality of war-time Britain: a nation with a purpose; a people with a will to win. Britain at War in Colour is a unique account of Britain during the Second World War.
