Welcome to The Atlantic’s retrospective of World War II through photos divided into twenty parts. Originally posted as a series in 2011, I’m rather glad I didn’t find it till now. I don’t think I could have waited for each part to be released as I really enjoyed browsing through the entire collection in one sitting.
Navigation is easy! You can start at the beginning with the Before the War section, then continue through the sections chronologically till you end up at After the War. Each section features an introduction and then dives right into the photography. Just scroll down the page to look at the photos and the informational captions beneath them.
Photos that could be considered graphic or offensive are blacked out. You can view them by clicking on them, or skip over them. When you’ve browsed through one gallery, use the Next Gallery link at the bottom to navigate forward. Or you can use your browser’s back button to go back to the main page and select a different gallery. As always with these types of public galleries, I didn’t read the comments as they are usually filled with spam, trolls, or incendiary arguments – read them at your own risk.
This site gives a very interesting look through photographs into a time period that the world is still fascinated with. Go check them out today!
