Photographer Alfred Eisenstaedt captured this fleeting moment which truly salutes the power of love. Shot on August 14, 1945, "Kissing the War Goodbye" celebrates V-J day, marking the end of the war between the U.S. and Japan. The image was published two weeks later in Life Magazine (Aug. 27, 1945).
