December 7th, 1941: Canada First to Declare War

At War on the 7th Apro­pos Decem­ber 7th, my friend Randy Bar­ber (Ontario) writes: “Recent­ly, I pur­chased sev­en copies of a World War II Cana­di­an Army news­pa­per called Kha­ki.

Churchill on Trial: Washington, 1953

Churchill on Trial: Washington, 1953

In ear­ly 1953, Win­ston Churchill was placed on tri­al by his peers, with Pres­i­dent Tru­man the pre­sid­ing judge, for com­plic­i­ty in the use of atom­ic bombs.

Sources: Clark Clif­ford, rec­ol­lec­tion, to Richard Lang­worth, 1988. Mar­garet Tru­man, “After the Pres­i­den­cy,” in Life, 1 Decem­ber 1972, 69-70. Also record­ed in her book, Har­ry S. Truman.
