Thanks for this. I had had it bookmarked, but had lost it a month or so ago.

I love the Kodachrome pictures, they’re great. If you like old pictures, I recommend shorpy.com, lots of cool old photos there.

There are some great pictures there; it’s going to take a while to go through them all. The color photos are surprisingly clear, but it looks like most were staged so I suppose they benefited from artificial lighting and really low ISO. I was surprised to see the warnings on some of the photos for depicting graphic images of dead soldiers, but no such warnings in the Holocaust photo section – those pictures really showed a horrific bit of human history.

If I want a reminder of the war all I need to do is look at the Jap helmet in my living room. My father in law picked it up on an airfield on Iwo. He was a SeaBee. And yea its got some holes.
