EYE-OPENING photographs of the Nazi Germany Army during the devastating Second World War have been revived through vivid colourisation.
The incredible images show some of Nazi Germany’s most lethal snipers taking aim at the enemy, soldiers marching down an occupied area with tanks and trucks to the sides, and two technicians fixing a Nazi-German fighter plane.
One picture shows a group of soldiers carrying a casket of a fallen solder in what appears to be a ceremonial send-off to the deceased soldier.
The images were brought to life by electrician Royston Leonard (54) from Cardiff, Wales.
“This project was to show the war from all sides,” he said.
“This set shows the German war machine and the soldiers at war. Colouring these pictures reminds us to never let it happen again.
“Look at the pictures and remember what happened in Germany could happen again in any country in the world today if we are not careful and help each other when in need.
“Hate is an easy weed to grow and can go unnoticed until it’s too late and takes over. Be on guard as it can look like the best flower in the garden.
“What I see in the pictures is the world gone mad and sadly war was the only cure.”
The Wehrmacht, which was the German name for the Armed Forces of Nazi Germany, fought for their dictator leader, Adolf Hitler, from 1935 to 1946.
During the height of the Second World War, Adolf Hitler designated himself as the commander-in-chief of the Wehrmacht.
The dreadful war concluded with a defeated Nazi-Germany which led to the eradication of Hitler’s Armed Forces of Nazi Germany.
