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 website is made out of respect for the victims, the civilians and the veterans of WWII. It generates no financial gain what so ever and it is merely a platform to educate the visitor about WWII.
A big THANK YOU to the United States Army Center of Military History for their help in providing the input for these pages. All pages on this website are constantly being refitted with acurate data and texts and it is an ongoing process.
