Operation Overlord: Great Plans and Big Egos.

Talk by Lord Richards of Herstmonceux 

Wednesday 15th January 2020 7.30 pm

Operation OVERLORD was the biggest amphibious operation in history. It took years of almost faultless planning and preparation. Yet it was a close run thing, in part because of the oversize egos and rivalries of the politicians and generals involved, on both the Allied and Axis sides. Underpinned by a campaign narrative that culminates in the fall of Paris, this revealing talk also examines the conduct and motives of the characters in whose hands our destiny lay.

Talks are held at the Mountford Rooms. Emsworth Community Centre. North Street. Emsworth PO10 7DD  

Tickets are available on the door and doors open at 7pm.  EM&HT Members £3    Non members £4
