1945: Mildred Gillars, one of two women known as "Axis Sally," delivers her last propaganda broadcast to Allied troops just two days before the German surrender in World War II. An American broadcaster, Gillars was employed by the Third Reich in Nazi Germany to proliferate propaganda during the war. She was convicted of treason by the United States in 1949 following her capture in post-war Berlin.
