This is the eighty-fourth installment in Eric’s series entitled Spiritual Lessons from WW2. In this episode he discusses the strange and intoxicating effect of VE Day (Victory in Europe) on the Allies. It was like a sleeping pill. They defeated Hitler, but May 6th, 1945 was not the time to lay down the weapons, curl up in a ball, and take a long nap. Japan was still threatening in the Pacific and a new menace (previously an Ally), known as the Soviet Union, was quickly becoming a hostile element in Eastern Europe. How often we stop short of complete victory because we are satisfied with a partial victory.
