D-Day to Paris

Lecture no. 19 from the course: World War II: A Military and Social History

 D-Day to Paris

Taught by Professor Thomas Childers | 29 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online History Courses

Defense of northwestern Europe had been left to Erwin Rommel, who argued that the key to a German victory was to defeat the Allies at the beaches—and especially to hold fast during those first 24 hours, "the longest day." This lecture traces the last agonizing stages of planning and launching the D-Day invasion, the course of the battle in Normandy and the bocage beyond, and the liberation of Paris.
