James Holland

Normandy ’44 – D-Day and the Taking of Europe

6.00pm to 7.00pm

Fowey Town Hall, £10

Coinciding with the 75th Anniversary of D-Day, renowned World War II historian, writer and broadcaster, James Holland draws on unseen archives and testimonies from around the world to offer a new perspective on this historic time. The well-trodden narrative follows the view that the Allies, led by the USA, had the material advantage, but the Germans were superior in terms of training, tactical ability and weaponry. To James, this view of the Germans is nonsense. In his new book Normandy ’44 – D-Day and the Taking of Europe he uses the opportunity to halt this on-going mythologizing in its tracks. James is a regular commentator on TV and Radio for all things World War II. He has been a mainstay for five series of National Geographic’s globally successful Nazi Mega-Structures and has also recently filmed Hunting Nazi Treasure, an eight-part series for Channel 4.

Wine and soft drinks available.
