These are great photographs. The one of "Gabby" is on the cover of his autobiography. He autographed a copy of his book for me at  Oshkosh.

Not bad. But that opening picture I am 99% sure is a colorized B&W photo... That always ticks me off. It has been published for decades in B&W now suddenly it shows up there in color. Many of the others can be found in the Life archives via Google. The burned out Panther in Paris was a new one to me though. IIRC there is a good back story to that photo of how it was knocked out.

stik - no doubt some of the photos were/are colorized from B&W photos. The one with the Germans taking a smoke break seem a bit over dramatic to me.

I jut get peeved about folks who colorize well known B&W photos (obviously) via computer and then try to pass them off as original color photos. Whoever put that photo thread together just took stuff at face value and then perpetuates the falsification. It's like those ones where guys do the same thing with B&W and say it was found in their dead somebody's trunk undeveloped for the past 70+ years. B&W film, Color film, and Digital photography are all differnt mediums with their own charecteristics, just like acrylic, enamel, and oil paints are to us modelers.

The soldiers with German helmets with skulls painted on them...I think I saw that photo somewhere and it was marked as Finnish soldiers in a Russo-Finnish war.
