D Day 75 Concerts

In June 1944 the Battle of Normandy began, resulting in the Allied liberation of Western Europe from Nazi Germany’s control. Codenamed Operation Overlord, the battle began on June 6,  also known as D-Day, when some 156,000 American, British and Canadian forces landed on five beaches along a 50-mile stretch of the heavily fortified coast of France’s Normandy region.

Bomber Command’s efforts prior to, during, and immediately following D-Day played a major role.  Without the sustained attacks by Bomber Command on Hitler’s war machine, D-Day would not have taken place or, if it had been attempted, it might have been a costly failure.

To commemorate the 75th Anniversary of this turning point in the Second World War the IBCC is delighted to host a weekend of concerts
