This Day in History: 1940 – The Axis Powers of World War II are formed as Germany, Italy, and Japan become allies with the signing of the Tripartite Pact in Berlin.

Fact of the Day:  The Tripartite Pact between Germany, Italy, and Japan provided mutual assistance should any of the signatories suffer any attack by any nation not already involved in World War II.  The formalizing of the alliance was aimed directly at America – designed to force the United States to think twice before venturing in on the side of the allies.

Strange, but True:  Following the attack at Pearl Harbor, President Roosevelt requested a bulletproof car but, due to a spending limit of $750, the only car within their budget was Al Capone’s limo, which had been seized by the Treasury Department following Capone’s arrest for tax evasion.
