80 Years Ago—Aug. 12, 1942: Second Moscow Conference opens: Churchill and Stalin meet for the first time and discuss opening a second front in the west.
In Chesapeake Bay, light cruiser USS Cleveland performs successful test of VT proximity-fuzed antiaircraft shells.
Actor Clark Gable enlists in the US Army Air Force.
As always, great blog entries, but the conference that opened today was the Second, not the First, Moscow Conference.
Thank you so much for the correction! I’ve edited the post.
