Omaha Beach and the Landscape of D-Day

The terms Omaha Beach and D-Day need no introduction to most Americans and Europeans. This presentation will examine historic and modern photographs and maps to illustrate the nature of the “Landscape of D-Day” in geographical and human terms. Some of the images are famous, others are virtually unknown, but many have the power to be educationally informative and emotionally moving. These images will provide a basis for discussing the importance of Omaha Beach and D-Day in the past and its continuing relevance in the present.

 

There will also be a brief discussion of the mission of the Army Heritage Center Foundation in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, and information will be provided on a September 2017 Normandy tour to benefit the AHCF.

Dr. Blades is a local archaeologist and historian whose research includes examinations of sites from the Second World War in France, Belgium, Holland and Luxembourg.
