World War II: The German Army in Italy unconditionally surrenders to the Allies.

German Army surrenders in Italy.

  • Rome, Italy

One of the last remaining outposts for the Nazi Army, on Apr. 29, 1945, the German Army in Italy unconditionally surrendered to the Allied forces.  Italy had previously joined the Allied side following the death of Mussolini in 1943, though Germany was insistent on a continued presence in the Italian peninsula.  This occurred just days before the unconditional surrender of Germany, which effectively ended World War Two in Europe.
