SHAEF Release No. 1453, WW2 Censor Teletyes For 8 May 1945 Announce German Surrender


This SHAEF Release No. 1453 from Dwight D. Eisenhower telling the men the war in Europe was over, that the Germans had surrender. He is thanking them for their Honor and dedication to bring the war to an end. A lot of things where going on on May 8, 1945 and I am so glad Col. Nelson saved this. I hope to donate them to the WW2 museum with all the document Col. Nelson kept.

When I have time I will expand the information of where these came from
