Dr Simon Trew will be speaking about German perspectives on D-Day and the 1944 Battle of Normandy. We generally see this campaign from the Allied side, but what factors affected the German conduct of the fighting?
The talk is hosted by the Centre for European and International Studies, University of Portsmouth, in association with the D-Day Museum. It is open to anyone with an interest in the subject. There is no charge to attend and advanced booking is not required: just turn up. There will be refreshments at 5pm and the talk starts shortly afterwards.
Dr Simon Trew is a member of the Department of War Studies at the Royal Military Academy, Sandhurst. His research interests include the Second World War in Europe, especially the planning and execution of the Normandy Campaign. He is the author of many books on the Normandy Campaign, most recently 'D-Day and the Battle of Normandy: The Photographic History' (Haynes, 2012). Dr Trew has extensive experience in planning and delivering battlefield tours in Normandy, and has also appeared in many documentaries and programmes focused on the campaign.
