45 Vintage Photos of Love During Wartime That Will Melt Your Heart!

These heart-pounding photos of love during wartime prove true love never dies, it only grows stronger with time. And as they say, distance truly does make the heart grow fonder. It's based upon the same psychological premise as "you don't know what you've got until it's gone."

Being separated from your partner during war is a treacherous endeavor, but it's a sacrifice many people make for their country. These loving photos show couples being reunited and separated due to war. Those separating have no idea if they will ever see each other again, and sadly, some are pictured saying their last goodbyes.

This is an incredible collection of feelings represents the love, innocence, despair, loss, and undying perseverance within all of us. Some of these wartime photos are very moving and we truly hope you enjoy!
