Museum presents the back story of D-Day

The Normandy Invasion – June 6, 1944, produced many heroes and led to the downfall of the Nazis in Europe. The invasion was a success due to the bravery of soldiers, the leadership of officers and the military might of the allies.

However, there were other heroes as well. The code-breakers and the XX Committee kept Hitler and his leadership confused about where the invasion would occur.

In honor of Veterans Day, the Rochester Hills Museum at Van Hoosen Farm will present The Spies of D-Day on Wednesday, November 14 at 7 p.m. This talk will be about the overall strategy, successes and failures, bravery of the soldiers and the incredible behind-the-scene activity of those other heroes back home in England that helped assure the success of the invasion.

Admission is free for museum members. Admission for non-members is $5 for adults, $3 for students and seniors (60+). To register, call (248) 656-4663 or e-mail
