Biographical/historical information

After the end of World War II, the United States, Great Britain, France, and the Society United occupied four zones of Germany in 1945. The Soviet Union controlled the eastern section of Germany and the other three powers controlled the western section, leading to the Cold War tensions. In 1955, West Germany's occupation ended, but the U.S. Army's military bases remained. The collection includes photos from Joe Gladstone Norman's time in the U.S. Army in Germany and Austria during this time. East and West Germany remained separated until 1990 when they were formally reunited.
