May 13, 2014 Grand Valley State University D-Day marked the commencement of one of the greatest common ground initiatives in world history -- the final campaign of the Allies to take Europe back during WW II. Pulitzer Prize-winner Rick Atkinson's riveting account of that bold gamble set the pace for the masterly narrative that follows. Historic events came alive with a wealth of new material and a fascinating cast of characters. Atkinson told the tale from the perspective of participants at every level, from presidents and generals to war-weary lieutenants and terrified teenage riflemen. When Germany at last surrenders, we understand anew both the devastating cost of this global conflagration and the enormous effort required to win the Allied victory. This Hauenstein Center event was in partnership with the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Foundation and Library & Museum.
