The codebreakers of Bletchley Park have another secret to reveal.
Bletchley was the centre of preparations for the Normandy Landings of 6 June 1944. D-Day saw the greatest seaborne invasion in history but also ‘the longest day’ for those involved - from Allied conscript to German soldier and French resistance fighter. Bletchley Park research historian David Kenyon and bestselling author Giles Milton discuss these human stories and previously classified documents behind Allied success on Normandy’s beaches.
Chaired by David Reynolds, festival patron and Professor of International History, University of Cambridge.
