The Center for American War Letters Archives announces the inclusion of archival correspondence in our Digital Commons platform in honor of D-Day, June 6th, commemorating the Allied invasion of Normandy, France, during World War II in 1944.

This collection contains three correspondences written by service members about the invasion. These service members either directly served on D-Day or landed in Normandy shortly after the invasion.

From the air to the ground, this collection represents a sample of the thousands of U.S. military personnel who served during the invasion, opening a second front in Europe that would eventually lead to the defeat of Nazi Germany.

The letters can be found here:
