From 1941 to 1944, America and her allies pursued the goal of defeating “Germany First” and if ever there were two years to remember, 1944 and 1945 are surely them. Two years that produced probably the most pivotal events in world history culminating in the end of World War II.
On 6th June 1944 and under the command of American, General Dwight D. Eisenhower, Allied troops landed on the beaches of Normandy, France – prompting an end to Hitler’s reign. Everyone understood that this operation was the start of a crusade – the war’s last great campaign against the forces of evil.
In 1945 and after six long years of war, the world was at peace again. The end of the war also saw the founding of the United Nations. A noble concept dependant upon the support of the USA, as only America had come out of the war still rich and powerful enough to hold sway.
1945 laid the seeds of renewed hope for the future … and witnessed perhaps the most acclaimed and welcomed USA stamps ever seen!
In 1944, just 5 stamps were issued commemorating key American Anniversaries - including the 3c Corregidor issue. In 1945, the United States featured evocative images on their stamps of Troops passing under the Arc de Triomphe, The United Nations Conference issue and probably one of the most popular and emotional United States issues ever, the Raising of the Flag at Iwo Jima.
