Andrea Miniatures War Is Over A Wonderful World WY-16
It was August 14, 1945 in Times Square New York, NY. The war in the Pacific had ended and people spontaneously took the street to celebrate. Alfred Eisensteadt, a man whose heritage drove him to flee his native German, was working for LIFE magazine. In that moment of relief, he captured a moment. Little is know for certain. Who was the sailor? Who was the nurse? Many names have been offered and just as many have been called into question.
Perhaps all that is certain is that so many years later, as the Greatest Generation in passing on. that image and that moment still speak to us. If we do not who, perhaps we still know why. The war that came upon us by surprise, the war that had cost the country so much, the war that brought us D-Day, Iwo Jima and Atomic Bomb, that War was over. We had survived.
If this moment speaks to you, then you now have opportunity to keep close on your desk or on your shelf. Paint the miniature yourself, it is ready to assemble cast white metal kit. Limited supply available.
