70th Anniversary of D-Day
Dr. Raymond Sickinger, professor of history at Providence College.
This week marks the 70th anniversary of D-Day, the Allied invasion on the beaches of Normandy, France that helped lead to the defeat of Nazi Germany in World War II.
About 160,000 U.S., British and Canadian troops took part in the D-Day landings. As of last September, there were about 1.25 million U.S. World War II veterans still alive. Four hundred thirteen (413) of them die each day, according to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.
Many historians say D-Day was the watershed moment of World War II, and the most significant event of the last century.
Dr. Raymond Sickinger, professor of history at Providence College, is available to offer his expert opinion and insight into the enormous impact D-Day had on world events.
