End of the War!
To a 9-year-old boy, Aug. 14, 1945, the day the war was over, was just another day in that adventure everyone called simply "The War." For us boys growing up in the 1940s, the war was something to talk endlessly about, to play at with sticks and toy soldiers, and play uniforms and hats. It was something to read about in a vast array of comic and adventure books, and to listen to amid static on the radio.
