The American Army in Normandy from Omaha Beach to the Falaise Gap

June 6, 1944, is arguably the most important single day in western history for the past 2,000 years. Failure of the Normandy landings could have resulted in a very different world than we know today. As important as that single day was, however, D-Day did not end the Battle for France, much less the Second World War. Success on June 6 was just the beginning of the 11-week Battle of Normandy that ultimately resulted in the destruction of the German army in France and opened the door to the ultimate invasion and defeat of Germany.

Reflect on this day of remembrance in an hour-long PowerPoint presentation at the Rochester Hills Museum at Van Hoosen Farm on Veteran’s Day, Thursday November 11, from 7:00 – 8:00 p.m. Program held inside the Calf Barn, 1005 Van Hoosen Road, Rochester Hills, Michigan.
