Welcome to DDay.Center

About DDc

The aim of our website is to offer an accessible, easy-to-follow guide to D-Day and the Battle of Normandy, whilst providing some opinions and useful advice to help people discover the battlefields and landing beaches of Normandy for themselves. We also want to try and highlight the many physical reminders of Operation Overlord here at home - many of them now overlooked or their relevance forgotten.

If you have a spare five minutes (and thirteen seconds) please take the time to watch our short film. It's a tribute to all those who fought in Normandy - to those who returned, and to those who never will. Make sure you have your audio switched on.

DDay.Center is also a great place to keep up-to-date with the annual D-Day Anniversary commemorations. We compile listings from numerous sources and believe we provide the most comprehensive overview of forthcoming events being held not just in Normandy but also those taking place in the UK, Canada and the United States.

Please visit our dedicated D-Day events website at www.dday-anniversary.com. Every year around five million people visit the area, and through education, exploration and remembrance we aim to help keep alive the story of the veterans of D-Day and the Battle of Normandy.
