Remember. Reflect. Rejoice!
This are at least 16 (yes, sixteen) D-Day specific posts on this blog, not counting all those on ‘Churchill‘ and the ‘RAF‘. So, please check them out. They all contain painstakingly researched images or videos. You will be amply rewarded.
I am a great admirer of D-Day.
I always pause to reflect on this day, June 6, 1944 — 9-years ahead of my birth.
D-Day, of course, changed the course of history — of course, for the better.
Yes, this being the 75th anniversary we will, quite rightly, see lots of gusto, pomp and ceremony. I wish we would celebrate it with similar vigor each and every year.
I was in London for the 50th anniversary. That was quite an occasion.
If NOT for the Allied heroics of this day we will NOT be speaking English.
