After 5 years of fighting and thousands of men and women losing their lives defending our country, the war in Europe is over. On Monday, May 7th, 1945, Germany's formal capitulation came at 2:41 am (French Time) in the red Reims schoolhouse, head-quarters of General Eisenhower, Supreme Commander of the Allies of the west. The crowning triumph came just five years, eight months, and six days, after Hitler invaded Poland and declared war against peace loving countries.
Included is this newspaper from Tuesday, June 2, 1942, from the Norristown Times Herald, Montgomery County's Great Home Newspaper. Above the name of the newspaper it reads--We Must Win the war For America. Six months into WWII this newspaper gives up to date news on events happening overseas along with other local events in and around Norristown, Pennsylvania.
