The Normandy landings were the landing operations on Tuesday 6 June 1944 of the Allied invasion of Normandy during World War II. Codenamed Operation Neptune and often referred to as D-Day, it was the largest seaborne invasion in history.

Organised by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (Devon and Cornwall Local Network), this talk by Dr Phil Judkins is a full account of the various deception campaigns which masked the D-Day landings, both by agents and by radio and radar intercepts.

The talk is open to all and no booking is required. 

Refreshments are available before the start of the lecture at 18:30 in Room 002, Babbage Building.

Continuing Professional Development (CPD): This event can contribute towards your CPD hours as part of the IET's CPD monitoring scheme.
