In this episode, Colin is joined once again by the American military historian, Michael Neiberg. This time they discuss a little thing called D-Day a.k.a. the Normandy Invasion a.k.a. Operation Overlord. Operation Overlord is one of the largest operations in military history and in this discussion Michael and Colin delve into not only the events of June 6th, 1944, but also the logistical challenges faced by Dwight Eisenhower and his team of planners, French involvement in the operation, as well as the living legacy left on the beaches.
So if you know a few things about D-Day but are wondering about Mulberry harbours called Winston, force multipliers, how to say Forces françaises de l'intérieur, and French citizens being riled up by poetry, this is the episode you've been looking for. Enjoy!
