Here are some really stunning photography of WW1 in full color. Although color photography was around prior to 1903, the Lumière brothers, Auguste and Louis, patented the process in 1903 and developed the first color film in 1907.  The French army was the primary source of color photos during the course of World War One.

My great Grandpas all took part in this war, My Great Grandfather Francois Picot had his ship sinking in the Baltique sea and was delivering messages on the front lines during War time as a light cavalry men or Hussard…engaged in the army for 7 years, first in the Marine…. He was awarded the WW1 Croix de Guerre with a palm and had 7 citations form the French Army.
