D Day +70 - Information Site

Although 2014 is just over a year away, this website is the only one on the Web preparing for the 70th Anniversary of D Day and the Battle of Normandy, which will take place in June 2014.


The site is by military historian Paul Reed, the son of a WW2 veteran, WW2 author and regular contributor to BBC History programmes like Timewatch and Meet The Ancestors.
