Commemorate VE Day with the RUSI Journal

The RUSI Journal is commemorating VE Day by bringing together key research published in the Journal. The featured content looks in detail at various events surrounding and following on from VE Day: from Churchill's speech announcing the unconditional surrender of Germany at the end of the war, through the enduring impact of strategic bombing on Europe, and on to the shaping of post-war geopolitics in East Asia. The collection, including a 1945 war diary from the Journal's archive, seeks to evaluate the enduring significance of VE Day, both in the immediate aftermath of the war and the subsequent shaping of the post-war world. 

Discover the following research for free today. The content will remain free until 31 July, 2020.
