WW II (In Colour - mostly)

#2
Series on SKY at the minute - THE COLOUR OF WAR. Mostly American fooatge, but quite interesting all the same. Still can't figure out why a P47 with it's 8 50 calibre machine guns was shooting the crap out of some poor Italian farmer in his horse and cart though........

I think it's mostly American footage because our cameramen didn't get much, if any, colour film. The cameramen certainly had guts to get close armed with only a camera.

It was filmed in 1944 - IIRC, after September 1943 were the Ities not on OUR side ?
