Outline

Berlin lies in ruins. Nearly 120,000 people are homeless. FDR’s sudden death stuns the world. Tension among the Allies builds as the gulf of distrust between Stalin and Churchill widens. The Ruhr industrial area west of Berlin is now nearly conquered. But away from the German heartland, fighting continues. In Italy, the Allies launch an offensive aimed at clearing the Nazi troops from the country. In the Pacific, the Army’s 96th Division launches an attack on Okinawa’s Mount Shuri, while Tokyo is hit by more massive bombing raids as US troops continue to forge ahead.
