D-Day: The Soldiers’ Story

D-Day: The Soldiers’ Story

Thursday 8th November

19.00 – 20.30
With Giles Milton

D-Day, 6th June 1944. An epic battle that involved 156,000 men, 7,000 ships and 20,000 armoured vehicles. Almost 75 years have passed since this day when the outcome of the Second World War hung in the balance.

Join historian Giles Milton, described in The Sunday Times as ‘a master of historical narrative’, to hear about his bold new account of how the events of ‘The Longest Day’ unfolded.

With tales of survivors from all sides and those of civilians hitherto unheeded, this is a story of individual heroics and of the raw, unvarnished experiences of those who were there on that momentous day.
