Interesting photo library from Dresden, Germany at www.deutschefotothek.de

You can find many interesting photos from life in Germany, like this fine series of colour slides from WWII.

I agree, you could try and Google for the colourslides from the American National Archives (NARA) taken during WWII, (they show the "homefront", not wartime action) also of amazing high quality and making it look like B-17 bombers were being build yesterday.
