Anmeldelser

«The past – even its grimmest, darkest hours – was not in black and white»

Guardian

«While many can claim to show you Winston Churchill as he's never been seen before, this photograph is perhaps a true first»

Discover Britain

«A new perspective to the bloodiest half-century in history»

Daily Mail

«To see Winston Churchill's youthful freckly face in 1911 is revelatory. In a single image, we see how far the journey was from a somewhat gadabout sea lord to Our National Saviour»

Daily Express

«For the first time, we are seeing the scenes in colour as images from a new book show how much changes but how much stays the same as history unfolds. Covering the years between 1914-1945, The World Aflame shows the planet gripped by wars, the rise of right-wing governments and a deadly pandemic»

Sunday Post

«You may need a strong stomach for some of the images, but they are immensely vivid, and Jones's text is crisp»

Sunday Times

«Stunning»

People's Friend

«Jones's commentaries are small miracles of compression... Amaral's achievement in bringing colour as 'an emotional enhancing agent' to these photographs is extraordinary'»

World of Interiors

«Frequently stark and sometimes bleak... but this is a testament to the quality of Amaral's work, and its effect on the human eye'»

Military History

«The events of the first and second world wars are brought to vivid, startling life thanks to Amaral's skill at colourising contemporary images»

Observer

«Amaral's colourised images bring history to life in breathtaking technicolour. Although, actually, Amaral's palette is far more nuanced and beautiful than that»
