World War II was a cataclysmic event in world history and its bloodiest conflict. Over 60 million people would lose their lives over the six years of the war. It was certainly a watershed event in the lives of the people who lived through it. Today it is hard to imagine those difficult years, when a shadow of darkness seemed to creep, unstoppable, across the world. At times, it was not clear how the Allied Powers would be able to prevent the Axis Powers – Germany, Italy, and Japan – from invading other countries. Indeed, at one point, Great Britain was the only Allied country in Europe to remain unconquered by Germany. In this program, Mr. Kind will focus on the massive assault launched by the Allies that turned the tide of the war in Europe. Known as D-Day, it combined intelligence, creative innovations, overwhelming numbers of troops and weapons, elaborate deceptions, international cooperation, and committed leadership. It also required great bravery and sacrifice on the part of the men who made up D-Day’s landing force. Truly June 6, 1944 is a date for the whole world to remember.
