Glimpses of World War II, the conflict that changed our world, mostly exist in shades of black and white on film.
From 1939 to 1945, photographers with varying backgrounds and nationalities documented all aspects of WWII. Military events, civilian volunteers, periods of jubilation, and times of sorrow appeared in their snapshots.
These images - many from the collection of the US National Archives - serve both as documentation of WWII and as works of art.
