WWII Recon Image Archive

The Brits are putting their entire recon photo collection (5.5 million pictures) from WWII on the Internet.

While the full database is still not online (as of this posting), it is supposedly coming within the next few weeks. They have some samples available in the Image Shop already with more on the way.

Apparently this same archive was used in production of the movie series "Band of Brothers".

Yeah one could spend a long time looking through those, but I found the samples interesting. Real photos even if imperfect seem to make the whole war more real to me.

BTW, you can delete a post by clicking on the "Edit" part of your post, then clicking on "Delete this Post". Not sure why you are having double post problems, seems to work ok here.
