Todd PittengerMay 18, 2019

On June 6, 1944, Dwight D. Eisenhower, Supreme Allied Commander during World War II, led the Allied Forces in the D-Day invasion of Normandy, France. Code-named Operation OVERLORD, this was the greatest invasion in human history that, less than a year later, led to the liberation of Europe from Adolf Hitler’s Nazi tyranny.

The Eisenhower Foundation, in partnership with the Eisenhower Presidential Library, Museum and Boyhood Home in Abilene will mark the 75th anniversary of this historic event by hosting a week of events commemorating D-Day, as well as honoring Dwight D. Eisenhower and the soldiers who bravely served the U.S. during World War II.
