About this event

72 years ago one of the greatest amphibious assaults in military history was launched from the south coast of England. 7,000 vessels landed 156,000 troops on the beaches of Normandy within a few hours as part of the D-Day landings.

The presentation by Eppo van Weelderen will identify the key engineering issues faced by the Allies and the innovations used to overcome them.
