Colour Pictures of London Under Siege During World War II
Most photographs from World War II have only been seen in grainy black and white. But now, new colour images have emerged that show the full horror of the destruction inflicted by Nazi bombings across London. The powerful images were released to mark the 70th anniversary of the launch of Winston Churchill's 'V for Victory' campaign on July 19, 1941.

The pictures vividly show the horrors of war. You can view several of the colour pictures in the Daily Mail.

  2. You are welcome. That second photo really is haunting, like there is nothing or no one left.
