Deutsches Reich
  • S. H. Steinberg
Part of the The Statesman’s Yearbook book series (SYBK)


Germany’s unconditional surrender came into force on 5 June, 1945. On that day the transfer of all power in Germany to the governments of the four principal Allies was formally endorsed, and by the Potsdam decisions (17 July, 1945) that power is exercised by the commanders-in-chief of the armed forces of the United States, the United Kingdom, the Soviet Union and France, each in his own zone of occupation and also jointly, in matters affecting Germany as a whole, in their capacity as members of the Control Council.
