A valuable illustration of the horrors of war
3 February 2003 | by (Deloraine, Tasmania) – See all my reviews

As someone with more than a passing interest in the history of WWII, I found this series to be a worthwhile addition to the vast(and growing) library of documentaries covering this dark period of man's history. Though "The Color of War" lacks the depth and breadth of "The World at War", which for me remains THE definitive documentary of the war, the valuable color film elements seen in this series certainly add a new dimension. There's little doubt that seeing the events of the war in the Pacific in gruesome detail makes it somehow more real than watching grainy black and white footage. Additionally during numerous sequences, letters from various servicemen and women who lived through the war are read over the accompanying footage. The anguish and sense of loss, grief and despair are inescapable, and give one a real sense of what it was like to cope with the situations these people found themselves in. It's important to note that this documentary is very graphic, and therefore should only be viewed by mature audiences. However, I for one think it's important that documentaries of this kind continue to be shown, lest future generations forget the sacrifices which were made by so many, and also to highlight the serious consequences of war. If you haven't seen "The Color of War", or it's U.S. namesake "WWII, The Lost Color Archives", then I thoroughly recommend you take the opportunity to do so. 8/10
