One of my favorite bloggers often posts about historical tours and field trips her family, stationed in Europe, takes. Today's post,
Mom in High Heels: Reims France-The War Rooms
is a great recap of their recent visit to the scene of Germany's official unconditional surrender on May 7, 1945 to the Allied Command. Now known in the USA as V.E. Day (Victory in Europe), this event ended the European hostilities of World War 2 (it would be 3 more months before the Empire of Japan surrendered, and longer before many in the Japanese military ceased making war).
Mrs HH has some fascinating photos, both recent and contemporary, and interesting comment on the part military protocol played in the signing event at Reims. Do check it out. For more sightseeing, you might also want to visit her homeschooling blog "Bent Grass Prep", as well.
