Spring 1944. The world held its breath as hundreds of thousands of Allied combatants leapt across the English Channel in the largest amphibious operation of the Second World War. The Normandy invasion, legendary in myth and astounding in scope, comes to life as historian Jared Frederick resurrects long-forgotten tales of individual struggle, sacrifice, and community. In his new book, Dispatches of D-Day, Frederick unearths hundreds of accounts from period newspapers and revives the lost voices of the momentous struggle to liberate Western Europe from Nazi tyranny.
Join us as Mr. Frederick paints an eloquently moving portrait of the soldiers and home front civilians who were dramatically affected by what Dwight Eisenhower called “the great crusade.” In this sweeping presentation, readers will embark upon a journey as the powerful saga of the D-Day experience unfolds with insightful interpretation and profoundly enduring lessons.
