The Postal Service issued a commemorative sheet of ten 29-cent stamps marking the 50th anniversary of World War II on May 31, 1993 in Washington, DC. This issuance is the third in a series of five issued annually through 1995. The stamps were manufactured by the Bureau of Engraving and Printing in the offset/intaglio process.
 
The stamps, designed by artist Bill Bond of Arlington, Virginia, highlight the following 1943 events and subjects: Allied forces battle German U-boats; military medics treat the wounded; Sicily attacked by Allied forces; B-24s hit Ploesti refineries; V-mail delivers letters from home; Italy invaded by Allies; bonds and stamps help war effort; "Willie and Joe" keep spirits high; Gold Stars mark World War II losses; and Marines assault Tarawa.
