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 useful advice and opinion 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.

DDayCenter 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 are able to provide the most comprehensive overview of forthcoming events being held not just in Normandy but those taking place in the UK, Canada and the United States. Every year around five million people visit the D-Day sites. Through education, exploration and remembrance we want to help keep alive the story of Normandy Landings and of D-Day Veterans. This quote from a well-known journalist and war reporter mirrors our own intentions.
