May 1st — May 4th
Battle of the Coral Sea

One of the most important battles in the history of naval warfare occurred in early May of 1942. The Battle of the Coral Sea was the first air-naval battle in history, as none of the carriers fired at each other. As a result, Japan had sunk more ships, but the Allies managed to halt a major Japanese offensive for the first time in World War II.

May 4th — May 7th
P-47 first flight

The P-47 Thunderbolt fighter first took flight on May 6th, 1941. Nicknamed "Jug" for its appearance, it was one of the heaviest and most powerful aircraft of the World War II era. The P-47 was successful in both air combat and ground assault; it was widely used in European and Pacific theaters of World War II and also by the USSR through the lend-lease program.

May 7th — May 10th
The end of the Great Patriotic War

Victory! The Red Army repelled the Axis powers for four long years: it defended Moscow, took back Stalingrad, reclaimed the initiative at Kursk, and then kicked the invaders out and chased them all the way to Berlin. The German Instrument of Surrender marked the end of the Great Patriotic War — the hardest in the entire history of the USSR and Russia.

May 10th — May 13th
Operation Diadem

To Rome! Beginning in early 1944, the Allies had tried to breach the Gustav Line whilst taking heavy casualties. The fourth attempt, called Operation Diadem, began May 11th and turned out to be successful, opening the path towards the capital of Italy.

May 13th — May 16th
The end of the Tunisian campaign

The North African campaign that lasted for almost three years had been put to an end in Tunisia. By May 13th, 1943 over 200,000 German and Italian soldiers had surrendered to the Allied forces, allowing them to turn to Sicily and later continental Italy.

May 18th — May 21st
Creation of the North Caucasian Front

The North Caucasian Front was created by the USSR on May 20th, 1942 to defend The Azov and Black sea coastlines. Led by Marshal Semyon Budenny, the North Caucasian Front was fought in the Stavropol and Krasnodar regions, stopping the invading forces from crossing the Caucasus mountain range.

May 22nd — May 25th
Battle of Boulogne

During the Battle for France, German forces surrounded the Allies in the town of Boulogne-sur-Mer, forcing them to defend themselves. Poor communication between the Allies led to a large number of British troops evacuating by sea, abandoning the Welsh Guards and surprising the French. Nevertheless, the defense of Boulogne had delayed the German advance towards Dunkirk, where the mass evacuation of Allied troops took place.

May 27th — May 30th
Bf 109 first flight

The Messerschmitt Bf 109, a legendary fighter aircraft, took to the air for the first time on May 28th, 1935. It soon became the most mass-produced German aircraft. It was used by numerous aces of World War II: from Günther Rall to Erich Hartmann, the most successful fighter ace in history. Even with the advent of jet aircraft, the Bf 109 remained popular: the Spanish Air Force continued to use it until late in 1965.
