In this podcast episode, we feature a short speech by General Dwight D. Eisenhower to the allied troops who were to land on the Normandy beaches during D-Day in just a few hours. Nearly 10,000 of these brave troops will lose their lives during the invasion against fierce German resistance.
Separately, I provide several PDF documents: first, a transcript of this speech, secondly an overview of the D-Day invasion, and finally, the diversion plan headed by General Patton to shift German attention away from the Normandy beaches. Next week, I provide the farewell speech of President Eisenhower to the American people.
