    I´ve read about Trenton, which I missed by one day. Anyway, some other interesting stuff happened.

    - 1941 Japanese bombers attack Manila.
    - 1944 General G. S. Patton’s Third Army, spearheaded by the 4th Armored Division, relieves the surrounded city of Bastogne.
    - 1979 President Hafizullah Amin of Afghanistan is ousted and murdered in a coup backed by the Soviet Union, beginning a war that will last more than 10 years.
