WWII Operation Overlord: The Longest Day in History
Join Brad Livingstone, popular historian and Baylor’s First Gent, as he goes deep into Operation Overlord, the Allied invasion of Nazi-occupied Normandy France. On June 6, 1944, 1,200 planes, 5,000 naval vessels, and 160,000 troops approached the shores of Normandy. The Allied forces carried out one of history’s largest amphibious military operations to take control of Western Europe and bring defeat to the German war machine. Study the planning that preceded it and the ongoing effort that followed it.
We anticipate that this course will be well attended, and parking may be limited. Please consider carpooling to the Mayborn Museum.
