May 7, 1945
On May 7, 1945, Germany officially surrendered to the Allies, bringing an end to the European conflict in World War II. General Alfred Jodl, representing the German High Command, signed the unconditional surrender of both east and west forces in Reims, France, which would take effect the following day.May 7, 2013

I'm not sure I feel the excitement and thrill this event would have caused to be  felt by my parents and grand parents. I'm sure I don't want to experience the grief and pain that leads up to this type of moment. Sad  I can only hope our current leadership can learn from the past and not create the same mistakes.

That's right, the surrender in Reims concerned the Western front but Stalin wanted Russia to determin the end of the war and Keitel signed at Berlin on 8 mai. That date is still an official holliday in France. We also celebrate Jeanne D'Arc as she liberated Orléans on 8 may 1429 that ended English occupation.

Today in1945 ended the 6 years of war. It was the end of suppression, humiliation, extermination, killings and murders, only for the Germans' pleasure. It was the end of the last and 3rd war provoked by Germany in 70 years.

I can only hope our current leadership can learn from the past and not create the same mistakes.

As well as those of our adversaries. But they continue to stir the pot, pushing boundaries just like the leaders of Germany and Japan did. South China sea, Africa, The Crimea/Baltics. Our current administration is immersed in economics not war.

I don't remember the end of the war in Europe, but I do remember when the Pacific war ended. Big black headlines in the Manchester Union Leader. Atomic Bomb Dropped. Then a few days later - Japs Surrender. I also remember when my Uncle returned. Walked through the front door with the cutest little girl from Tennessee on one arm.
