    schema:description "D-Day is one of the most recognizable terms in World War II lore and the invasion of Europe that it signifies is being commemorated in a big way in Europe in the spring of 2019. D-Day, 75th Anniversary : A Millennials' Guide goes beyond dates and figures and breaks down the history and happenings of the event that insured Allied victory into Past, Present and Future. Learn about the big personalities that put the invasion in motion and planned the details. See the awesome equipment - tanks, planes and ships - that made it possible. Meet the players on both sides of the battle and how they teamed up or fought each other to achieve victory. The book also follows the D-Day legacy, with updates on Band of Brothers, secrets of Saving Private Ryan and other D-Day films as well as tips on how to find D-Day personalities in your own family tree. Connect with the 75th anniversary events on social media or in person - a World War II English pub crawl, French coffeehouses with a past and the who, what and where of next June's ceremonies in Great Britain and France. From the people and events of 1944 to what this history will mean to future generations, D-Day, 75th Anniversary : A Millennials' Guide is your one stop answer book to the knowledge and excitement of D-Day."@en ;
