This year sees the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings, a pivotal moment in a war that changed American society. Personal histories can provide rare opportunities for us to understand these changes and events through the voices of those who experienced it.

In this webinar, our panel will consider current approaches to researching the Normandy landings, and how personal histories and testimonies can be a rich source of knowledge for academics and students in understanding the impact and legacy of World War Two in America.
