    Great movies. I love them both, especially the latter with Cary Grant and John Garfield.

    The Battle of Midway 75th Anniversary June 4.1942

    We have always called it the Miracle at Midway. And it truly was a miracle.

    Six survivors of the Battle of Midway attended a ceremony in Washington Saturday to mark the 75th anniversary of the pivotal World War II battle.

    “The Battle of Midway was the turning point in the war in the Pacific,” attendees were told during the commemoration at the National World War II Memorial.

    The speaker was former Senate Majority Leader Bob Dole, the memorial’s national chairman, and a decorated and wounded World War II combat veteran.

    A brilliant engagement. I'll watch the movie tonight. One of Charlton Heston's great performances.

    Liberation of Paris, August 25, 1944

    A great day in 20th Century history.

    http://www.history.com/this-day-in-h...ation-of-paris

    On this day in 1944, French General Jacques Leclerc enters the free French capital triumphantly. Pockets of German intransigence remained, but Paris was free from German control.

    Two days earlier, a French armored division had begun advancing on the capital. Members of the Resistance, now called the French Forces of the Interior, proceeded to free all French civilian prisoners in Paris. The Germans were still counterattacking, setting fire to the Grand Palais, which had been taken over by the Resistance, and killing small groups of Resistance fighters as they encountered them in the city. On August 24, another French armored division entered Paris from the south, receiving an effusion of gratitude from French civilians who poured into the streets to greet their heroes—but still, the Germans continued to fire on French fighters from behind barricades, often catching civilians in the crossfire.
