Seventy Years Ago Today

On 13 May 1943, the Afrika Korps, along with all other Axis forces in North Africa, surrendered to the Allies.

The above photograph is one of the great Erwin Rommel photographs from the North Africa campaign. The photograph dates from 1942.

Also on this day: The War Of The Bavarian Succession—known in Austria as “The Plum War”—ended in 1779.
