On Wednesday June 6th, our host Karma Chavez and her guest Mary Louise Roberts discussed her newest book, D-Day Through French Eyes.
“Silent parachutes dotting the night sky—that’s how one woman in Normandy in June of 1944 learned that the D-Day invasion was under way. Though they yearned for liberation, the French in Normandy nonetheless had to steel themselves for war, knowing that their homes and land and fellow citizens would have to bear the brunt of the attack. Already battered by years of Nazi occupation, they knew they had one more trial to undergo even as freedom beckoned.”- The University of Chicago Press
