General Alfred Jodl

Alfred Jodl is born. A German general during World War II, Alfred Jodl will sign the unconditional surrender of Germany to the Allies at Reims, France.

After the war, Jodl will be charged with conspiracy to commit crimes against peace; planning, initiating and waging wars of aggression; war crimes; and crimes against humanity.
