    Photoarchive: World War II In Photos: A Retrospective In 20 Parts

    Link: World War II in Photos - Alan Taylor - In Focus - The Atlantic

    World War II is the story of the 20th Century. The war officially lasted from 1939 until 1945, but the causes of the conflict and its horrible aftermath reverberated for decades in either direction. While feats of bravery and technological breakthroughs still inspire awe today, the majority of the war was dominated by unimaginable misery and destruction. In the late 1930s, the world's population was approximately 2 billion. In less than a decade, the war between the nations of the Axis Powers and the Allies resulted in some 80 million deaths -- killing off about 4 percent of the whole world.

    This series of entries will last from June 19 until October 30, 2011, running every Sunday morning for 20 weeks. In these photo essays, I hope to explore the events of the war, the people involved at the front and back home, and the effects the war had on everyday lives. The entries will follow a roughly chronological sequence, with some broader themes (such as "The Home Front") interspersed throughout. These images will give us glimpses into the real-life experiences of our parents, grandparents and great grandparents, moments that shaped the world as it is today. I hope to be able to do justice to this important story in this large-photo narrative format and invite you to join me for the next 20 Sundays.
    Part 1: World War II: Before the War - Alan Taylor - In Focus - The Atlantic [45 photos in this part of the archive]


    Adolf Hitler, age 35, on his release from Landesberg Prison, on December 20, 1924. Hitler had been convicted of treason for his role in an attempted coup in 1923 called the Beer Hall Putsch. This photograph was taken shortly after he finished dictating "Mein Kampf" to deputy Rudolf Hess. Eight years later, Hitler would be sworn in as Chancellor of Germany, in 1933

    I can post as new content is added until 30th October [when the series is completed]

    However here is a link to a page that will allow you to keep up to date automatically [there are various options on the page and you should be able to find one that suits]

    Link: Follow the Atlantic - The Atlantic

    RSS: Follow the Atlantic - The Atlantic [Same page]

    There are also options for keeping up to date using Twitter, FaceBook, E-Mail, iPhone and iPad apps and podcasts. Having said that I can still post notifications of updates to this page in this thread. If you would like me to do this let me know.
