WORLD WAR II (WWII)

 

Below you can find vintage photographs of the World War II (WWII) made by different photography agencies during the war.

The Second World War was documented on a huge scale by thousands of photographers and artists who created millions of pictures. American, british and german military photographers representing all of the armed services covered the battlefronts around the world. Every activity of the war was depicted--training, combat, support services, and much more. On the home front, war agencies produced and collected pictures, posters, and cartoons on such subjects as war production, rationing, and civilian relocation.

Los datos que figuran en cada fotos se obtienen de los datos que la agencia ponía en cada foto. Lo hacia directamente, con maquina de escribir, bien sobre la propia foto o sobre un papel cebolla, típico de esos años, ligeramente pegado al dorso de la foto
