  1. There was a color photography process from before the war, I have seen elsewhere color photos of the war so may these as some of them. They look more like they could be rather than hand colored.
    You can see some here.

  2. The photo of the two Germans machine gunners is a fake.

    Here is the original: Link

    I would not be surprised if the photo link I just posted is also a fake, or was staged. The idea that a camera man set up a photo and had an artillary shell happen to go off at the same time is possible, but not probable. If he was crazy enough to set up for a photo shot while even a desultory artillery barriage was going off, there would be movement in the water.
