Dagger at the heart of Germany

Sunday, June 25, 1944

My parents are practically dancing for joy! They just heard on the radio that we’ve taken the Cherbourg Heights. But more important, the Russians smashed through Nazi lines on four whole fronts. Newscasters are calling it “a dagger at the heart of Germany.” Plus, the Pacific Fleet shot down 82 Japanese planes. In fact, a big problem now is what to do with all the prisoners-of-war. Allied success means thousands and thousands of them. There are so many they have to be sent lots of different places, England, Canada, even here. My father predicts the Germans will rush West to surrender to our guys rather than face vengeful Russians in the East.
