On August 14, 1945, Alfred Eisenstaedt took a picture of a sailor kissing a nurse in Times Square, minutes after they heard of Japan’s surrender to the United States.  For almost two decades Lawrence Verria and George Galdorisi were intrigued by the controversy surrounding the identity of the two principals in Eisenstaedt’s most famous photograph and collected evidence that began to shed light on this mystery.  With this book, the authors solve the 67-year-old mystery by providing irrefutable proof to identify the couple in Eisenstaedt’s photo. It is the first time the whole truth behind the celebrated picture has been revealed.

The Kissing Sailor has received reviews in The Wall Street Journal, The Boston Globe, Publishers Weekly, Library Journal, Booklist, The Huffington Post, The New York Daily News, and countless other publications, websites, and features stories.  Tom Brokaw is quoted as saying “What a wonderful detective story about a kissing sailor and a beautiful nurse—the most famous couple celebrating the end of WWII.  Famous but anonymous until now. I loved it.”
