Perhaps the greatest truism in history - that it is written by the victors - has often led to discussions of events on the Western Front, in which Nazi Germany plays no role. This conversation will attempt to explore and examine some of the perspectives which arise from this, most notably the polarized opinions which either see the Western Front as the only Second World War, or as a total irrelevance in the context of the War in Eastern Europe.

John will attempt to show that neither of these polarised perspectives reflects the importance of D-Day in Nazi Germany, and will show how the events of 6th June 1945 had ramifications in Germany which went far beyond the purely military defeat which resulted in the establishment of bridgeheads on the Normandy beaches. This will be a talk which looks at nuance in history and attempts to build a broader picture of this complex history.

This conversation is suitable for all ages.

90 minutes, including a 30 minute Q&A.

This is the 3rd talk we've had with John; he's very knowledgeable and presents well. We've done in-person tours in various cities with Context and have always enjoyed them.
