Gary L : Color footage of WWII was thought to be "rare" because a lot of it wound up in storage vaults or film archives during and after the war. Fortunately a lot has been retrieved and preserved over the years and did not have to be "colorized".

roflcopterkklol : Look at all that male privilege.

Br4ndit0 : rip doggo

Volticymo : The footage being colored makes it feel like it wasn’t that long ago

John Robert Mallernee : My father (now deceased) was there. When I went to Viet Nam, I was the same age he was when he went to Normandy.

Phil Hand : I don't have the words to express my gratitude for what these brave young men did for our country. I may not know you but I love you all.

KelpNougatCrunch : They made that puppy a lifejacket

SMaze17 : Incredible footage. Thx for sharing.

H I G H E R W ØR L D S PR OD C TI ON : When i was younger, maybe 12 to 18 years old, i always thought how bad ass it would be to be in a war like WWII. You know, blowing shit up, shooting full auto weapons and such. As i matured that feeling was overwhelmed by another. When you actually realize what exactly is going on in such horrific events like this, it really changes you. Ive never seen combat but i have strong feelings for war. Such a traumatizing experience, i can imagine, and i dont think its possible to come back (if you come back) fully sane. Its unimaginable what these guys went through and i have so much respect for these gents

quantomic1106 : Foxhole Safe space of 1944

Indigo Swank : Hmmmm it’s crazy... I don’t see any females 🤔

Chris 279 : At 8:45 you see the LST 311. That was my grandfathers ship. He's likely in that footage.

koolerpure : how did men go from heroic and brave to sissy cry babies of today

Dave Boerema : These were real man, not like the tide pod eating, don't know which bathroom to use, so-called man children today.

Scarakus : This looks nothing like saving private ryan...

Ben M : Last year I met a veteran who served in Patton's army. He helped end the siege of Bastone. He fought in the Battle of the Bulge. Now he was having dinner with his 2 daughters at my local diner. I shook his hand in awe. I realize it sounds super cheesy to say, but the hand I shook helped defeat and effectively finish off the German army proper. I grew up watching movies about WWII, and it seemed so distant in the past even then (~1970). Now those movies and history came to life, and I reached out and touched it. What a honor and privilege it was to meet and chat with him (until their orders finally came, lol, and I respectfully left them alone. ). These priceless color videos help bring the heroism of our guys back to life too. Thank you.

Lunatic : When i watch WWII clips , i always get that wierd "nostalgia" feeling ..like somehow i was there and died .Previus life you'd say? Anyone feeling the same?

Transcendent Studios : America is often criticised for joining the war so late. But let it be said we wouldn’t have won without them, twice! Sword, gold and Juno beach were a picnic compared with Omaha and Utah. Eternally grateful to all these brave men. 🇺🇸 ❤️
