D-Day 75th Anniversary Photo Book now on Kickstarter

Daks over Normandy has teamed up with Five Oaks Creative to create the official photo book for the paratrooper jumps over Normandy commemorating the 75th anniversary of D-Day in June 2019.

A Kickstarter project has been launch and allows backers to follow the Airborne Operations of WWII Paratroopers and the DC-3/C-47 Aircraft during the event.

More than 250 men and women will board 35 C-47 Dakotas in the United Kingdom to fly across the English Channel and jump into the historic drop zones of Normandy, exactly like 75 years before. They will be wearing WWII style Allied uniforms and will jump military round parachutes. It will be an event which has no equal.

The Kickstarter campaign is based on a 100-page book commemorating the 75th anniversary of D-Day, focusing on the airborne operations. All 35 of the Daks over Normandy aircraft will be featured as well as associated paratrooper teams. Backers will be able to order different book sizes and even custom-designed versions to highlight a veteran or their personal involvement with D-Day.

Official Daks Over Normandy pins, caps, T-shirts, patches and challenge coins will be featured along with the opportunity to have a ‘Letter from the Front’ sent to a veteran from Normandy.
