A peace that passeth all understanding came to the world this week. It was anticlimactic, it was premature, it was confusing, it was the greatest snafu of all time-but it was wonderful. On the 2,075th day of the biggest, costliest war in history, some 25,000,000 ceased fighting. Ahead lay the difficult problems of the peace and the hard struggle to bring to an end the other half of the global war, the war against Japan.

President Franklin D. Roosevelt Died On This Date In 1945
The pace of F.D.R’s passing was like that of his life, swift and incisive:
- At 1:40 p.m., April 12, 1945, the 32nd President of the United States signed a series of documents, and relaxed in his Warm Springs vacation home while an artist, Mrs. Elizabeth Shoumatoff, sketched him.
- At 4:35 p.m. he was dead of a cerebral hemorrage.
