D-Day, June 6, 1944 Commemoration In Honor Of The 75th Anniversary Of The D-Day Invasion.

The longest walk is the story of the 29th Infantry Division on D-Day and those who enabled D-Day to succeed.

Operation Overlord, the amphibious invasion of northwest France on June 6, 1944, was the largest seaborne assault ever conducted. It 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 and how the hard fought actions of the 29th US Infantry Division enabled the operation to succeed.

Our presenter is Paul E. Zigo, history professor, author and military historian and the founder and director, of the World War II Era Studies Institute.
