    I don’t know if something can change color? Black and white paint is the most suitable for conveying the tragedy of war ...

      I don’t like it when black-and-white photos and films, documentaries and films, bloom.

        Most likely not colorized, given that in the pictures the Americans
        Agfa introduced in 1932 a color film called Agfacolor. Following her example, the American company Kodak released a three-layer color film in 1935 and named it Kodachrome.

        That is, at that time color photography abroad was more or less common.

          By itself. But not so, and I think not in that capacity.

        Well, for me, for example, the connection of time is simply lost. (Shtirlitsa didn’t understand whether it was distracting in color)

      This is also because the human eye perceives all shades of gray.

    Ballad of a Korean soldier
    Music: V. Muradeli Lyrics: G. Rublev

    The general told the Korean soldier:
    "I'm giving you a day off,
    You haven’t rested for more than a year,
    Go - see the family.

    Not to recognize you - in the hair of gray hair
    Tired, prickly look.
    But the wife will understand - war is war,
    And you are a soldier in war. "

    Gifts of friends took a fighter with him,
    Canned food and rice bagged,
    And the little daughter from the sleeve is empty
    A soldier made a whistle.

    He walked and sang about his native village.
    Three times he could die in battle
    But the soldier is alive and now over the hill
    He will meet his daughter and wife.

    With a song he ascended a steep hill,
    He looked around and saw - there is no village:
    Dead pipes stick out above the ground
    Black ash lies everywhere ...

    He called his wife, called his daughter,
    But suddenly he noticed a doll in the bushes.
    It seemed to him, froze froze
    In her glass eyes.

    He wiped a tear and squeezed the gun,
    Frost ran across his back.
    Armless doll Korean soldier
    He brought to his battalion.

    Said, "This doll doesn't belong here,
    But otherwise I can’t:
    She saw death - let her see revenge! "
    And he went to avenge the enemy.

      Yes, Iosif Visarionovich made a "small victorious war" to the west. All the vassals were shoveled away anyway.

      Yes Yes. In the photo, where the lads in wrapped panamas on armored personnel carriers, armed with Anfield and STAN, look like Australians. And on the car the flag of Britain ...
      Yes, with "DShK" and "RPD" it looks like guys of Turkish appearance ... And the "staff" on the sleeve says about it ...

            Then it’s not DP, but DP-27 ...
            And about the SG-43, thanks to you, I found an article on VO ... "Easel machine gun SG-43 (Machine gun Goryunov)
            May 19, 2012 "...
            And I felt ashamed ... I didn’t recognize ... In our school, the SSBMs were like decorative weapons. They did not use it, but carried it out on alarm. It is not clear why they were stored ...

    There is the funniest-funny military comedy-series "MES Hospital"
    (about the American military surgeons in the war in Korea;
    the colors of the terrain and the relief in the film in places coincide with several photos
    it immediately arouses associations with the film).

    Especially touched photo:
    in the afternoon
    with night sight,
    on a lightweight carbine
    standing on the parapet,
    "sniper" is a suicide.

    It is clear that most of the photos are staged.
    A sort of analogue of the Red Star in color.
    And still thank you very much!
    Sincerely ...

    It seems that Merlin Monroe did not do fitness. What is the size of a fried bird or were there broilers then? Maybe ostriches chewed? From a photo of Koreans, you might think that down jackets went from them.
    In general, color, of course, adds information. Or enlivens perception.

    When I reached the flamethrower tank, I smelled gasoline, and this is my lighter on the table left open)
    I don’t understand what kind of boxes on some tanks? It does not look like dynamic protection. In the thirty photo, the one in the cowboy hat, what kind of futuristic weapon does he have? And a medical carriage, in what ways did they overtake him there?

      "the one in the cowboy hat, what is his futuristic weapon?" ///

      Garand M1, but with a cheat.

      "I don’t understand what kind of boxes on some tanks?" ///

      Boxes with machine gun belts.
      The top row on the right is 0.3-inch ammo. The remaining 0.5.

    Fludist? Provocateur (paid)? or just foolish?

    Military history is not interesting - do not look.
