Lunchbox Lecture Series: The Diplomacy of D-Day

January 24 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Dr. Peter F. Coogan, Associate Professor of History at Hollins University

Most people know what D-Day meant for the thousands of Americans, British, and Canadian troops who came ashore in Normandy.  Less well known is the complex negotiations before and after the invasion that involved French, Polish, Russian, Belgian, Dutch, and Danish representatives.  Come hear about the international battles that were fought off the beaches.

Free and open to the public, donations appreciated.  Guests are welcome to bring a lunch to enjoy during the program.
