Dr Glyn Prysor discusses the Battle for Normandy with Professor Jonathan Fennell, examining the Allied advance that followed on from the historic D-Day landings.

D-Day is regarded as the greatest amphibious operation in history. Much attention has rightly focused on the planning, execution and impact of this historic operation. But an equally important aspect of this story is the campaign that followed as the Allies aimed to establish a foothold in France and push the Germans back.

Dr Glyn Prysor, in conversation with Professor Jonathan Fennell, will examine how British forces worked to liberate France and the challenges they faced in supplying such an endeavour. He will also look at how they managed to achieve a breakthrough, despite being surrounded on all sides by enemy forces, in what was a do-or-die moment for the Allied war effort.
