D-Day History and Normandy Invasion Special
In this special episode on D-Day History and the Normandy Invasion, Annie and Elyse remember the events of D-Day seventy years ago and the bravery of people involved. Elyse puts the whole tragic day into context: events leading up to it and a few critical details of what happened on that day. Then we share our experiences visiting the beaches in Normandy, the museums, the cemeteries. This is definitely a sobering and emotional topic, but seventy years later we should ask again: Are French grateful today? What are you likely to experience when you visit? Did this day truly change the course of time?
