Pincus, art critic of The San Diego Union Tribune , said that according to "theme-park logic" the statue suited the site, in front of the Midway Aircraft Museum , and that it pleased couples who mimicked the pose, but that it was kitsch and "The figures look like something from a cheap souvenir factory, blown up beyond any reason. Interest in a revisit to Sarasota in was cultivated by a director of a bayfront biannual show and an aluminum copy was placed at the bayfront, again temporarily.
An "year-old donor, who served in the U. While some members of the community supported the statue, others felt the statue was not good enough to be displayed on the bay front. The Chairwoman of the Public Art Committee at the time said that "it doesn't even qualify as kitsch It is like a giant cartoon image drafted by a computer emulating a famous photograph. It's not the creation of an artist. It's an artist copying a famous image.

Joel May, a Sarasota architect and a member of the city's public art committee, raised an issue of possible copyright infringement, because of the similarity of the sculpture to V—J day in Times Square , published in Life in and still protected by copyright. Johnson said he was aware of this issue, and had used another photograph of the kissing couple taken by Victor Jorgensen , which is in the public domain. An automobile crash occurred on April 26,  during which the Sarasota copy of the statue was struck by a vehicle and was damaged. The impact knocked about a 3-foot-wide hole out of the sailor's foot and added more hairline cracks to its frame.
This led to the statue being taken down by the city,  which laid the statue onto its side, close to the site, while insurance companies negotiate over liability and repair issues. The minimum distance for a road hazard established by the state of Florida is fourteen feet, but barely met that standard because it was erected near one of the busiest and most complex intersections in the city.
No one was present when the automobile jumped the curb and careened into the statue. Debate about returning the statue to that location has begun, with an editorial calling for moving the statue to a safer location, as had been advocated by critics before the statue was placed for the controversial ten-year display. This controversial move resulted in the resignation of three board members. In , a monumental statue of Unconditional Surrender could be seen in Civitavecchia Marina. The bronze replacement Unconditional Surrender statue arrived to its new home on February 11, In September , the statue was removed from Civitavecchia and installed at the Caen Memorial in Normandy.
It was precisely this installation in Caen, which was conversely also controversial. No, he chose to grab them, with clenched fists, to kiss them.

It was an assault. On August 12, , the original sculpture was temporarily installed in Times Square , New York City , near where the original photo was taken. The statue can be found in other places around the world.
The popular Roman cruise terminal of Civitavecchia in Italy has one that's very tall and overlooks the sea. It's a short walk from the cruise ships on the way to the train to Rome. A copy of the statue is a popular photo spot in Sarasota Florida according to photos on Trip Advisor as of March Through the help of several Sarasota County veteran's organizations, it was finally donated to the county, according to a plaque on display at the base of the statue.
A monthly turn is composed of phases. Rather than one faction taking its entire turn before the next faction does, each of the three factions in Axis, Western, and Soviet order completes one phase before moving on to the next phase in the sequence of play. Each faction may declare war on any number of neutral countries. Each active country determines its production points for the turn.
Strategic combat is fought between the Axis and Allied factions. One supplied air or ground unit may move any distance along a contiguous rail or road. The Operations Phase is when air, ground, and naval units move, fight, and check if they can trace a supply line. It has two Sub-Phases: Actions and Supply Check. As a ground unit moves it may initiate an attack against an enemy ground unit. Attacking costs additional movement points more so in bad weather conditions. Therefore, a unit that engages in combat will move less distance over time than a unit that does not fight.
Attacks come in two forms, Mobile and Assault. Only the activated, moving unit can attack at that time. As long as an activated unit has a sufficient movement points available, that unit can continue to move and attack i. An Assault allows multiple armies to attack a single defender at the same time. Higher quality armies are more effective at Mobile attacks, while poorer armies try to even things out with sheer numbers in an Assault.

Each unit checks to see if it can trace a supply line back to a supply source. If it cannot trace a supply line, its supply state drops one level. To trace supply across a sea zone, a convoy unit must be activated. If used to trace supply, a convoy will add Sorties to its total. In addition, an enemy faction can intercept that convoy during the supply line trace. Unsupplied units are reduced in strength or eliminated. Factions pay production points to increase reduced strength ground units to full strength or remove up to two Sorties each from air and naval units.
A unit can be improved only once per turn.
Costs range from points. For ground units, it is the same cost as to activate them in the Operations Phase, i. Units on the map may be replaced by Upgrade units. To ease play, the historical numeric designation does not matter. This phase is when new or eliminated units are brought into play. Costs range from points; the same number of points that it costs to improve such a unit in the Replacements Phase. A Surprise Attack marker provides its faction a positive combat DRM for all within its range, and is required in a Sea Zone in order to launch an Amphibious Invasion there.
Once a Surprise Attack marker is used, it is set aside and must be purchased again. Factions pay production points to either randomly pull a marker from the Diplomacy Cup and apply its political event, or it may instead take already pulled markers and put them back into the Diplomacy Cup. End of Turn Phase: The Turn marker is advanced one turn. Counters in the new Turn box are placed in their respective locations. In addition, units that were eliminated in the last turn are placed in their Mobilization Box so they may be rebuilt again this turn.

Simple math with minimal record keeping Historical or Variable Entry: An Airdrop and Partisans marker is placed in a hex. A ground unit is activated to move or perform an amphibious invasion.

This is a well done game that has the correct 'feel'. Two ticks on the negative side. Extremely low counter density makes for some situations that 'look odd' for one that is well read on the subject.
It is very much a game, and not a study of history. While I doubt it affects the game at all, it detracts from the product. Was this comment helpful? I guess there's not much hope that you could fix the map? Once I got a good look at the map, I put the game away to the "sell stack. It's intuitive, realistic, interactive, and, above all, elegant.
I just love adapting my manoeuvres, executing daring operations, and thinking out my strategy! Humorous and humane rules, simple yet elegant economic system, memorable combat modifiers married perfectly to a novel use of the combat results table, clear and uncluttered artwork. This is what keeps the hobby going. Fantastic game with easy to grasp rules and endless possibilities.
I seriously think it's the best wargame ever designed. I agree with Benjamin--this game deserves a deluxe edition. A truly ground-breaking masterpiece. Involving, challenging, fun and very rewarding.

Now I want every other war in history to get Mr Vasta's treatment! By the way, the map takes a few minutes to get used to, but its design really aids play and is attractive to use. I have play tested Sal's game several times, and have had my share of good rolls and bad. The game stands up to all of it, and delivers an engaging style all its own. Eager to play it even I should read some 40 pages of rules!
Mine, printer output, was frayed and worn on folds I dare not think its condition after a dozen parts. Showing comments of 12 Next Click Here to see all comments. Army, Fleet or Wing.
