Color Photographs from World War II

WWII in Color website has the Internet's largest collection of rare color photographs from World War II. This one above is a signed photo of the Flying Tigers in China.

Flying Tigers was a volunteer group of pilots and ground crew, recruited under a secret presidential order by Roosevelt to fight Japanese forces (under disguise that they're part of the Chinese Air Force) before Japan attacked Pearl Harbor.

Nick's is a great site for color photos indeed!

My website, World War II Database, also has a large photo repository. The link is this:

At the time of this writing, there are 4,788 photos, 620 of which are in color.

Hope you'll enjoy my site as much as Nick's!

Erik Shilling, the "Flying Tiger" in the photo, was a friend of mine, along with Tex Hill. We lost Erik just a couple years ago - I miss his easy-going smile and good nature. It sucks that we are losing these guys but its something I need to get used to. :\
