1943: The last German airfield in Stalingrad is captured by the Red Army.

1945: First Lieutenant Audie Murphy covers his men's retreat by holding off an advancing
group of Germans with a machine gun while radioing their position to Allied artillery.
Murphey earns the Congressional Medal of Honor for his action, one of the five medals he receives for heroism. This makes him the most decorated U.S. soldier of WWII.

1949: Axis Sally, who broadcast Nazi propaganda to U.S. troops in Europe, stands trial in the United States for war crimes.
