75 Years Ago—Dec. 20, 1943: In bombing mission to Bremen, the US Eighth Air Force first drops “Window,” strips of foil that confuse German radar (first used by the RAF in July 1943).
Bolivian government is overthrown in a coup; President Enrique Peñaranda goes into exile, succeeded by Maj. Gualberto Villarroel López.
That Window thing is awesome!
