Color WW1 Photographs

Found this site that has a bunch of color photos taken during WW1. Until I saw the pictures on the site, I had no idea that there were any color photos of WW1.
The American and British forces did not use color photography in the first world war. Only the French army used color photography. It seems that the French were using a color photo system called the Autochrome Lumière process, developed in 1903. That system remained the most common method of color photography until the 1930s when color film was introduced.

Check out the site, there are some amazing pictures of soldiers and war damage.
