75 Years Since VE Day

In Military History, Featured
Today marks the 75th anniversary of Victory in Europe day and the final collapse of the Nazi regime across the war-torn continent. In the preceding weeks and months, Allied forces had pressed on into Germany itself, facing desperate German resistance until Berlin was taken and Hitler took his own life. With that, resistance ceased and an armistice was negotiated and signed.  This was not the end of the wider war, as Japan was still to be defeated, but for many in the UK and on the continent, it meant celebration before the rebuilding of a shattered world could be contemplated. Across Europe the 75th anniversary celebrations will be muted as the coronavirus crisis continues, but there will still be opportunities to commemorate the brave men and women who went through so much.Continue Reading

Over the years, Osprey has published many extraordinary personal stories of the men and women who took part in this historic day, and to conclude our D-Day coverage we have drawn together three extracts which offer a snapshot of just some of their experiences.Continue Reading
