Here is a nice colour photo. Göring, Keitel and Dönitz. Photo stated as taken on 20. April 1944, possibly on an airfield, during a weapon presentation on Hitler's 55th birthday.

A contrast to the photo above. Dust and Russian roads in Summer, probably Ukraine in Summer 1942 Here's another interesting picture I found - "Berchtesgadener Jäger" Most likely a ha

No caption found for this photo, possibly taken in Paris, presumably after 1942

Colorized photo of a Bootsmannmaat next to a Churchill tank used in the Dieppe raid of 1942.  He appears to be holding a Martindale machete and armed with a Kar 98A rifle.

Colorized image of the Heinkel He 162 Volksjäger being looked over by RAF personnel after the war. Introduced in early 1945, it was made primarily of wood as metal was in short supply, being designed and built in less than 3 months. The plane could reach speeds of over 9oo KPH and was armed with a 20 mm cannon. The HE 162 only had about 30 minutes of fuel for flight, so it was limited in operations and due to lack of experienced pilots, never really performed as expected. The fighter had an ejection seat for the pilot, which was used 3 times in combat, 2 of which were successful. The HE 162 was a very streamlined and advanced aircraft, like some many of Germany's later war's efforts, it was just too little too late.

Colorized image of Volkssturm men wearing armbands that have Deutscher Volkssturm Wehrmacht printed on them, there were other armbands that were used as well. These 3 have Panzerfaust 60's over their shoulders as well. The Government tried to issue its ranks uniforms of all various types, but usually older men just wore the armbands or work uniforms as their was simply not enough to go around.
