What does the D stand for in D-Day? Which forces fought on the beaches during the invasion of Normandy? Which troops were the first ashore during D-Day? Why Normandy? From the beaches of Normandy to Berlin. Which units were on the beaches of Iwo Jima? What are the true facts about D-Day? Who were the veterans who were there? This website has the answers. Both Allied as Axis veterans are featured on my website.
Since the year 2000 (after a weekend visit to Normandy) I started this project I had set one goal for myself. That the website should be made in their honor. It grew from the first story that I received from Ray Aebisher (F Company, 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division) back in 2001 to over 250 stories from all sides of the war. It became a valuable educational collection of stories about what kind of effect ww2 had on the men and women living through it.
This page is layed out up in such a way that the stories that are on top are the new or updated stories. When you scroll down more stories will appear.
