Updated edition of sold-out softcover features 2019-2020 events celebrating the 75th anniversary of Victory in Europe

HERSHEY, Pa. - s4story -- The 75th anniversary of D-Day has passed but D-Day lives on! Monroe Publications announces the updated edition of D-Day 75th Anniversary - A Millennials Guide. The 336-page softcover book is part history, part travel guide and includes comprehensive information on continuing and new events through May 2020 commemorating the 75th anniversary of World War II in the European Theater.

Publishers Weekly states: "Readers will find this book an engaging introduction to D-Day." "The book effortlessly draws the reader into that fateful history of 75 years ago while establishing the context of the invasion in 20th Century history," says Armchair General.com. And finally, from Richard P. Haven, Professor Emeritus, University of Wisconsin-Whitewater: "This book is the kind I would like to see in high school libraries and used in their modern American History courses. It's a book that should help people who did not live through that era get a clearer understanding of what was happening back then."

With topics ranging from the impact of WWII on the world of today to the making of the iconic D-Day film Saving Private Ryan, D-Day 75th Anniversary – A Millennials Guide provides entertaining reading from the armchair or the road. Photos of the D-Day 75th anniversary commemoration in Normandy have been included. The updated calendar of events includes the gatherings in the Netherlands planned for Operation Market Garden (a parade of 400 WWII vehicles and multiple parachute jumps), "NUTS" weekend in Bastogne, Belgium and others.

Beyond the sites and events, the book explains in gripping detail the personalities and battles leading to the final defeat of Hitler and Nazism, the liberation of Europe and the end of the Holocaust. A flowing narrative is enhanced by photos, illustrations and specially created maps. "D-Day 75th Anniversary – A Millennials Guide was designed and written to engage techno-savvy individuals of the 21st century and let them know that without these Allied campaigns, current technology and the freedom to enjoy it would not exist. The failure to defeat the Nazis would have plunged the world into a chaotic period of more mass killings, absolute military rule and surrender of all independent thinking," explains editor Jay Wertz.
