VE Day - Victory In Europe Day.

Recorded as May 7 and May 8, 1945 when the victorious and not at all suffering from triumphalism Allies accepted the unconditional surrender of the armed forces of Germany.

The surrender of Germany was authorized by Adolf Hitler's replacement, President of Germany Karl Dönitz. (Uncle Adolf being unavailable to offer the surrender due to the high speed delivery of a 9mm bullet and cyanide capsule)

The war would however not end properly till VJ Day - August 15, 1945 - assuming you ignored the pesky guerilla holdouts - das Werwolves.
