Through a Freedom of Mis-information Act request and wiretapps I have stumbled upon some amazing news.  Here is the transcript of an actual phone call from 1945:

Ring, Ring

Ja who is dis?

Adolf, It’s Franklin Roosevelt.

Listen, all of my army and navy and air force is sick with the 1917 pandemic flu and I know your forces are sick too.  Why don’t we just call off WW2?

Gut idea, I’ll call Tojo, you call Winston and Stalin.

And that friends is how the second World War ended with the 1917 flu epidemic in 1945.

Really, he pretty much said that.
