Join John Cilio on Sunday, November 10th at 1:00PM and learn about one of the most pivotal events of the 20th century – the Normandy Invasion of WWII. Its complexity, its ingenuity, and its decisive effect on the war in Europe make it unique. Seventy-five years ago, as an early June dawn broke over the greatest sea-borne invasion ever launched, the D-Day of D-Days unfolded. The invasion began on June 5th with nighttime paratroopers converging on the French countryside. They were followed by squadrons of gliders, nearly 7,000 ships and 160,000 Allied ground troops supported by nearly 300,000 naval personal. It was a vast international military operation that succeeded against the odds and one which called for human endeavor on a heroic scale.
