On September 24

On this day in ...
... 1941 (70 years ago today), in London, at an Inter-Allied meeting, principles in the Atlantic Charter were adopted by 9 countries -- Belgium, Czechoslovakia, Greece, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Soviet Union, and Yugoslavia -- and by the Free French resisting Nazi German occupation. As we've posted, in August of the same year the United States and Britain had issued the Charter, which articulated reasons to resist the Axis Powers and "this proved to be one of the first steps towards the formation of the United Nations."
