On June 6, 1944, the Allies undertook one of the most bold and significant operations of World War II — a massive amphibious and airborne assault in Normandy — marking the beginning of the end for Nazi oppression in Europe. Join us to honor the 80th anniversary of this monumental day with an inspiring online lecture by Dr. Spencer Jones, esteemed historian and author. The first 24 hours of Operation Overlord, codenamed “D-Day,” saw a united effort of American, British and Canadian forces overcome Hitler's formidable 'Atlantic Wall' and secure essential beachheads. Dr. Jones will unveil the strategic brilliance and steadfast bravery that marked this pivotal moment, propelling the Allies towards the liberation of Europe — a testament to extraordinary courage and strategic genius that clinched the Allied victory.
