After more than four years of Nazi occupation, Paris is liberated on this episode of This Day In History.
On this episode of This Day In History, Tony and Armand are here to discuss World War II and the Allied troops’ liberation of Paris.
In 1944, after more than four years of Nazi occupation, Paris is liberated by members of the French and U. S. military, accomplishing the goal of the assembled French 2nd Armored Division. Armand tells us that had he been alive, he would have been more than willing to lend a hand in saving all of the French women (Ooh La La!).
Plus, German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche passes away on this day in 1900, the United States National Park Service is created in 1916, and Sean Connery is welcomed into the world in 1930.
