On June 6th, 1944, D-Day, 156,000 American, British and Canadian forces landed on five beaches along a 50-mile stretch of the coast of France’s Normandy region. The invasion was one of the largest amphibious military assaults in history. By late August 1944, all of northern France had been liberated, and by the following spring the Allies had defeated the Germans. The Normandy landings have been called the beginning of the end of WWII in Europe.
To commemorate its 75th anniversary Marines’ Memorial San Francisco will host a free program commemorating this historic battle. Brigadier (Retd.) Roderick Macdonald MBE and Dr. Seth Givens will present D-Day as it was experienced by those who were there- telling stories in the words of sailors, soldiers, commandos, parachutists and aircrew who took part in the operation. Dr. Givens will focus on the experiences of the Allied Forces, and Brigadier Macdonald will tell stories from the German/Axis point of view.
