D-Day, June 6, 1944: Why Did it Succeed?

Wednesday, May 29th @ 7pm

Operation Overlord, the amphibious invasion of north west France on June 6, 1944, the largest seaborne assault ever conducted, was carefully planned over a six month period as a combined, joint service operation. The operation nearly failed.  This presentation will review the details of this crucial invasion.

This presentation will be given by Paul E. Zigo. Mr. Zigo is a history professor, author and military historian, as well as the founder and director of the World War II Era Studies Institute.
