    Re: This Day in WW2 History

    Well apparently not much else of magnitude regarding World War 2 happened on this day besides what's been posted. Although I did find this...

    May 19th 1941 - German occupiers in Holland forbid bicycle taxis.

    I went digging through my library in search of my book compiling tons of significant dates regarding WWII but alas couldn't find it. Will continue the search. =)
