This Day in History
1813: The Russians fighting against Napoleon reach Berlin. The French garrison evacuates the city without a fight.

1904: Russian troops begin to retreat toward the Manchurian border as 100,000 Japanese advance in Korea.

1941: The British navy raids a German position off the coast of Norway and inside the Arctic Circle-the Lofoten Islands. The raid, code name Operation Claymore, proved highly destructive of its target--an armed German trawler--but ultimately a failure in achieving its objective, the capture of an Enigma decoding machine.

1944: The U.S. Eighth Air Force launches the first American bombing raid against the German capital of Berlin.

1951: U.S. Marines advanced to within nine miles of Hongchon.

1968: In a draft memorandum to the president, the Ad Hoc Task Force on Vietnam advises that the administration send 22,000 more troops to Vietnam, but make deployment of the additional 185,000 men previously requested by Gen. William Westmoreland (senior U.S. commander in Vietnam) contingent on future developments.
