Program Description

Event Details

In the early hours of 6 June, 1944, US Airborne Divisions perilously dropped paratroopers into enemy territory. Robert Mueller will explain how these paratroopers prevented Germany from attacking the American amphibious landings, despite being frequently off target, lost, and lacking heavy weapons.

This is a hybrid event, with an in-person presenter and both in-person and virtual participants. This registration is to attend in-person. To attend via Zoom instead, click here.
