Fighting for freedom: Extremely rare colour photographs show D-Day (and the resulting celebration) in a whole new light

A new batch of incredibly rare colour photographs has been released by LIFE magazine in honour of D-Day, showing masterfully coloured images both before and after the assault of World War II’s dramatic turning point. Captured by photographer Frank Scherschel, the pictures from before and after the Normandy invasion depict the operation in a whole new light.

Mr Scherschel manages to capture nearly idyllic images after the invasion, including reactions in small French towns and the rolling countryside and civilians coming together in Paris to celebrate their freedom. for more click here
