A selection of 100 new photographs has been released to mark the centenary of the end of World War 1. The selection was originally faded black and white images. They were colourised to give us a better idea of what happened in the War, which killed nine million people. The photographs show wounded soldiers, prisoners of war, fighting in the trenches, and scenes in London the day after the war ended on November 11, 1918.

Photo colouriser Tom Marshall wanted to do something special to commemorate the 100-year anniversary. He began the project in 2014 - the centenary of the start of the War. He wanted to pay a, "tribute to [those] who lived through the war, and those who lost their lives." He added: "I included men and women of several nationalities, races and religions, as the entire world was affected by the war." WW1 was called, "the war to end all wars".
