Setting the International Stage for Invasion: The Diplomatic Underpinnings of the Grand Alliance

Peter L. Hahn, professor of history and department chair at The Ohio State University, analyzes the diplomatic underpinnings of the Grand Alliance in the period leading up to the D-Day invasion. He explores the international conflicts and agreements that set the stage for the greatest amphibious invasion of the war. This talk was part of "Remembering D-Day: A 70th Anniversary Commemoration" sponsored by the Department of History at Ohio State in June 2014.
