Summary
"It's an iconic image, a sailor kissing a nurse in New York City's Times Square. Photographed on August 14, 1945, by legendary photojournalist Alfred Eisenstaedt and published in Life, it captures a historic moment, the end of WWII. It's a safe bet that most of the book's potential readers have seen the photograph, but who are the people in it? That's the mystery Verria and Galdorisi attempt to solve in this fascinating piece of detective work"--Booklist
