75 years ago Allied forces stormed five Normandy beaches, a plan shrouded in secrecy and executed with great courage. Over the course of a single day the outcome of the war swung decisively in their favour. This special collector set forms a fascinating retrospective of D-Day, the operation that turned the tide of the Second World War. Comprising a commemorative £2 coin finished to Proof standard and an original period newspaper from June 1944, it’s a fitting way to recall the enormity of the undertaking and what it meant to people back home waiting anxiously for news.
