They Fought in Colour / La Guerre en couleur

by The Vimy Foundation (Editor), Daniel Poliquin (Translator)

Iconic photos from the First World War, newly colourized.

Picture the First World War as if you were there: in living colour and immersive detail. Even for such a richly documented time, the era is usually obscured behind grainy black-and-white photography. They Fought in Colour is a photographic exploration of Canada’s First World War experience, presented for the first time in full, vibrant colour, with essays by some of our country’s leading public figures.

Explore life on the front lines, the huge support network needed to maintain the Canadian Expeditionary Force, and events on the home front in Canada, during the war that shaped the events of the twentieth century and continues to be present in our lives today.
