David P. Colley, "The Stories behind the Famous Photographs of World War II," Eight Bells Book Lecture, Naval War College Museum, April 21, 2016.

The faces in photographs of World War II - both the famous pictures from Life magazine and the seldom-seen snapshots of individual soldiers, sailors, and correspondents - have a unique capacity to induce awe, respect, and wonder. The year 2015 marks the seventieth anniversary of the end of that war. The images of those veterans, depicted in photographs, bring alive those momentous years and enshrine the soldiers in our history and our imaginations.
