World War II: How Did It End?


6 comments:

  1. Of great historical importance and often in the final days of WW2 documentaries this is shown.
    An interesting sideline is that Admiral von Friedeburg and General Kinzel from the German side of the surrender and who had NO war crime atrocities to their names, committed suicide in "shame" by the end of May.
    Another interesting aspect that the last witness to the video - the British translator for "Monty", Derek Knee, a linguistic expert, died at the age of 91 years in 2014.

    Just shows the stupidity of war and consequences so bewildering.
    Appropriate that you selected this day May 9th for this blog report. Well done.
