Sunday, June 11, 2023
This Week on History Happy Hour: This week on History Happy Hour: Chris Anderson and Rick Beyer look back on the D-Day landings with a 90-minute encore presentation of our 2021 D-Day Special. Rick hosted the show live from the National D-Day Memorial, and three distinguished guests joined us for a D-Day discussion.
The show begins with author Giles Milton, and a look at his riveting account of the first 24 hours of the D-Day invasion as told through a symphony of incredible accounts from both sides. The book is Soldier, Sailor, Frogman, Spy, Airman, Gangster, Kill or Die: How the Allies Won on D-Day.”
Then we are joined by historians Joe Balkoski (Omaha Beach, Utah Beach) and Craig Symonds (Operation Neptune) for a freewheeling five-way discussion on D-Day Controversies. And we have a few surprises as well.
Sunday at 4PM ET on History Happy Hour, where history is always on tap.
