History Happy Hour Episode 128: Normandy Breakout Masterclass
Guests: Matt Broggie, Erik Flint, and Hugh McDonald-Buchanan
Sunday, January 15, 2023
This Week on History Happy Hour: When it comes to WWII, a huge amount of attention is (rightly) focused on D-Day. But the following days and weeks, as Allied troops try to break-out of the Normandy Beachhead against fierce German resistance, is often given short shrift. In April, Chris and Rick will be two of the four historians conducting the Stephen Ambrose Historical Tours 2023 Masterclass, which will dive into just that story.
This week they welcome fellow historians Matt Broggie, Erik Flint, and Hugh McDonald Buchanan talk about the fascinating aspects of the breakout, Normandy to Paris, and the sites we will be visiting on the trip.
Sunday at 4PM on History Happy Hour, where history is always on tap.
