"The brave ones were shooting the enemy. The crazy ones were shooting film."
- Norman Hatch USMC WWII Combat Photographer

The Army Pictorial Services (APS) were formed under the insistence of General George C. Marshall in 1942 as part of the Army Signal Corps. Both film and still photography was used extensively throughout the war for tactical and propaganda purposes. The plethora of images that remain are a boon to even casual WWII history buffs.
