For a bit more on today's events, go visit Anna's Clue Tank. I find her Blog interesting and eclectic enough to keep me interested. From Her post for what happened on November 11th through time:
Twenty four years after the guns fell silent across the fields of France, the sounds of battle reverberated again in France and in fact across the whole world. Vichy French forces in North Africa signed an armistice with the invading American and British forces. While Hitler ordered the invasion of Vichy France itself.
It's good stuff!
