When most people think of June 1944, they immediately think: D-Day. The 2019 International Conference on World War II, “June 1944: The Month that Changed the World,” will be a global exploration of that most pivotal month. The Conference sessions will take place in a sequence that best tells the story of the entire month and its effects, and new works and research will be presented by leading scholars in the field. The pre-Conference Symposium, “Eisenhower: The Monumental Man,” will explore the Supreme Allied Commander in Europe and 34th President of the United States in-depth as Americans look forward to the May 2020 unveiling of the Dwight D. Eisenhower Memorial in Washington, DC.
