History Hour is a series of presentations which covers manifold events in numerous eras.

Operation OVERLORD was the largest amphibious operation in military history. Often termed the “Great Crusade”, the Normandy Invasion was the long-anticipated Allied invasion of Hitler’s Fortress Europe. The Normandy Invasion was so vast, so complicated and so dependent on all parts coordinating with one another, that it involved years of planning and training. Over 160,000 Allied troops, 6,939 ships and landing vessels and 2,395 aircraft participated in the Normandy Invasion, which included airborne assault, amphibious assault and an elaborate deceptive operation that successfully hoodwinked the defending Germans.

Partake in a presentation of the Normandy Invasion and see period uniforms, gear and equipment of the campaign.
