The 70th Anniversary of D-Day - Operation Overlord.
This year (2014) is the 70th anniverary of D-Day when thousands of young men set sail from the south coast of England around here where I live, and flew from countless airports across the country to invade the Normandy Coast, to eventually liberate France.
You can read my review of Henry Brook's book "True Stores of D-Day" on this page where you will also find an amazing film that was made 10 years ago to mark the 60th anniversary.
It's an hour and a half long but well worth the time to watch. There is also a brief piece about my father who was in the Royal Navy and busy minesweeping off the French coast before the invasion went in. You can see all that here on this page.
