It was 74 years ago next week that the Allied forces landed in northern France.
The D-Day Invasion of June 6, 1944, was a turning point in World War II. The effort and the massive loss of life that occurred that day are remembered each year around the world.
This week on Going Places, KNKX travel expert Matthew Brumley helps us walk through some of that history, starting where the invasion occurred – along the windy coast of Normandy.
