Craig L. Symonds, Neptune: The Allied Invasion of Europe and the D-Day Landings

Wednesday, June 25, 2014 at 6:30pm

Central Library, Poe Room 400 Cathedral Street, Baltimore, MD 21201

On June 6, 1944, 160,000 Allied troops landed on the beaches of Normandy to battle German forces. It was the greatest sea-borne assault in human history. The invasion, and the victories that followed, would not have been possible without Neptune, the massive naval operation that led to it.

Craig L. Symonds, professor of history emeritus at the U.S. Naval Academy, is the author of many books on American naval history, including The Battle of Midway and Lincoln and His Admirals, co-winner of the Lincoln Prize in 2009.

The Ivy Bookshop will have copies of the book for sale at a book signing following the program.
