mar 20, 1948 - End of Allied Control Council
Originally, the Allied Control Council was the governing body of the Allied Occupation Zones in Germany after the end of World War II. This consisted of a representant for France, Britain, the Soviet Union and the US. The Soviet representative walked out of a meeting one day and never came back, essentially shutting down the whole operation as the four countries needed to be present.
