This episode of Big Blend Radio's "Military Monday" Show aired live on June 6, 2022 and features award-winning military historian and author Mike Guardia, who discusses the Normandy Landings, the landing operations and associated airborne operations on Tuesday, June 6, 1944 of the Allied invasion of Normandy in Operation Overlord during World War II. Codenamed Operation Neptune and often referred to as D-Day, it was the largest seaborne invasion in history. The operation began the liberation of France (and later western Europe) and laid the foundations of the Allied victory on the Western Front.
Along with many other military history books, Mike is the author of the widely acclaimed biography “Hal Moore: A Soldier Once…and Always,” that chronicles the life of LTG Harold G. Moore, whose battlefield leadership was popularized by the film “We Were Soldiers,” starring Mel Gibson. His latest book is, “The Combat Diaries: True Stories from the Frontlines of World War II.” This book features a collection of eighteen true stories from veterans who served on the frontlines in World War II...on land, on sea, and in the air.
