Overview

D-Day changed the world for good. It was the most influential and important single day in the history of the free world, as it put in place the first of a series of events that eventually led to this point in time, right here, right now. It pushed back and vanquished a tyranny of a kind never seen before, of the kind we will thankfully never see again. It led directly to the liberation of millions of people. It halted the extermination of yet millions more. It gifted billions of citizens around the world with an existence under freedom and luxury. Without D-Day all they would ever know would be fascism, hate, oppression and a life barely worth living. It allowed our children a quality of life never known before and yet the majority of those children know so very little about D-Day, about its ramifications, or realise just how much they owe to those brave, young men who took part. Those 156,000 young men, mostly aged 19 or 20 at the time, are an integral part of that heroic day and now sadly only about 0.3% are still alive. These are the Last of the Few and their voices, their stories, their tales all need to be immortalised whilst they are still able to talk.
