Kansas City, Mo. – Brave young men saved the world from tyranny a mere 70 years ago. The National WWII Museum estimates 555 Veterans from the era die every day. Some fought from foxholes, some in the air over Europe, and others on the oceans of the world. Most say they were just doing their job, and the real heroes are the ones who never made it home.

History affords the luxury of reflection. Today we know these men, and women, did more than they humbly admit. While there is no greater act of valor than paying the ultimate sacrifice – those fortunate enough to have made it back from this extraordinary historic event are most certainly worthy of our admiration.

Andrew Turner Auctions of Kansas City presents collectors and enthusiasts of this monumental period in world history a unique opportunity to own a tangible link. In a special online only auction, closing Oct. 5, 2014, the auction company features numerous signed photographs and other ephemera attributed to key figures of the time.

“It is humbling to consider your proximity to these events and the men who accomplished such amazing tasks,” said auctioneer Andrew Turner. “Famed airborne commander Maxwell Taylor, Enola Gay pilot Paul Tibbets, numerous Doolittle Raiders, German fighter ace Hugo Broch, US fighter ace and Medal of Honor recipient Joe Foss, Asian American fighter ace Freddie Ohr . . . the list goes on and on.”
