Excellent Series of WW2 Photographs

"Ve Day the Album" is a photographic memoir of World War 2. The photographs having been provided from the Imperial War Museum. In addition to the photographs there is accompanying text, but it is the photographs which this book is really about. Covering the period August 1944 to May 1945 the reader is presented with a wide variety of photographs from war torn Europe. I found the choice of photographs to be very interesting, with quite a few being actual combat footage. Some of the photographs appear staged for the camera, such as the one on page 116 showing a British soldier trying to pinpoint a German sniper, but otherwise they tend overall to present an interesting and historically accurate portrayal of this period of World War 2. Flicking through these photographs it highlights to me how well researched the movie 'Saving Private Ryan' was. Some of the shots in this book could have come out of the movie. An interesting read. Recommended.
