Dr Simon Trew of the Royal Military Academy, Sandhurst, will be speaking about "Women's experience of the 1944 Normandy Campaign".
Dr Trew will be looking at the experiences of women during the campaign, from those women serving in the armed forces of both sides, to civilians who witnessed the campaign. We are pleased to be working in partnership with the National Army Museum for this talk. Their museum will be reopening at the end of March after a major redevelopment.
Venue: National Army Museum, London.
