This Day in History: Battle of Britain Is Won (1940)

The Battle of Britain was the first major failure of the Germans in WWII. The Royal Air Force (RAF), outgunned and outmanned, defeated the German Luftwaffe and thwarted Hitler's plan for an amphibious invasion, which he had hoped would put a quick end to the war. The event was not only a testament to the courage of British pilots, but it also marked the first time a major battle was fought entirely in the air

Today's Birthday : Chiang Kai-shek (1887)

Chiang Kai-shek was an influential Chinese nationalist leader of the 20th century. During the Chinese Civil Wars of 1926-1949, he led the conservative Kuomintang (KMT) party in an attempt to eradicate the Chinese Communists. He ultimately failed, and his government was forced to retreat to Taiwan, where he continued serving as the President of the Republic of China and Director-General of the KMT for the remainder of his life.
