They Drew Fire: Combat Artists of World War II

This site is a companion to a new PBS film documenting the experiences and work of the more than 100 servicemen and civilians who served as combat artists in the Second World War. Serving or living with combat, medical, and other units of the armed forces, these artists produced over 12,000 drawings and paintings, many of which have not been seen since the war. At the site, users can browse a large gallery of paintings featured in the film, some of which are accompanied by remarks by the artist. Short biographies of the seven living artists featured in the film are provided, as is a list of related resources, including a history of World War II combat art programs.
