Victory in Europe Day Final Division Locations Battle Map


Victory in Europe Day, 8 May 1945, celebrates the unconditional surrender of Germany, ending the war in Europe. Millions took to the streets to celebrate across the world from Paris to London to New York City. However, when hostilities ended at 11:01pm, it was already 9 May in Eastern Europe. Russia recognizes 9 May as "Victory Day."

This map shows the locations of units on the Western Front on 6 May, one day before the first surrender (7 May in Reims France by General Jodl) and two days before the official surrender (8 May in Berlin by Keitel, von Friedeburg, and Stumpff). On the left side is the Allied Expeditionary Force's Order of Battle with every division commanding officer listed.
