Price of Freedom Museum observes D-Day 75th anniversary

Saturday June 8 • 9 a.m.-3 p.m.

During World War II (1939-1945), the Battle of Normandy, which lasted from June to August 1944, resulted in the Allied liberation of Western Europe from Nazi Germany’s control. On June 6, 1944, also known as D-Day, more than 160,000 Allied troops landed on five beaches along a 50-mile stretch of the heavily fortified coast of France’s Normandy region. The invasion was one of the largest amphibious military assaults in history. More than 5,000 ships and 13,000 aircraft supported the D-Day invasion, and by day’s end, the Allies gained a foot-hold in Continental Europe. The Normandy landings have been called the beginning of the end of war in Europe.
