Presented by the Institute for the Study of War and Democracy and the General Raymond E. Mason Jr. Distinguished Lecture Series on World War II, this special evening marks the official launch of “Everything We Have,” which tells the American story of the Normandy landings through personal accounts, images, and artifacts from the collections of The National WWII Museum.
Offering rare insight into the experiences of the soldiers, airmen, and sailors who overwhelmed Hitler's forces on D-Day, this new book tells the personal stories of the people involved in Operation Overlord in their own words, some for the first time.
About the Author: Gordon H. “Nick” Mueller, PhD, is President and CEO Emeritus of The National WWII Museum. A former Vice Chancellor at the University of New Orleans, he teamed with his close friend and UNO colleague Stephen Ambrose to cofound The National D-Day Museum, which opened in 2000. The institution secured designation in 2004 from the US Congress as America’s official museum for World War II. Today, The National WWII Museum is recognized as one of the world’s top museums. Dr. Mueller continues to participate in overseas educational tours of WWII sites and speaks widely on the war experience, the American spirit, and nonprofit leadership.
