GUEST SPEAKER:

Alex Kershaw

Journalist and Author

With the release of his book The First Wave in paperback in May, Alex Kershaw will share with us “an utterly immersive, adrenaline-driven account of D-Day combat.” Beginning in the predawn darkness of June 6, 1944, The First Wave follows the remarkable men who carried out D-Day’s most perilous missions. The first to fight when the stakes were highest and the odds longest, these men would determine the fate of the invasion of Hitler’s fortress Europe—and the very history of the twentieth century.

Alex Kershaw is a journalist and a New York Times bestselling author of books on World War II. Born in York, England, he is a graduate of Oxford University and lives in Savannah, Georgia. His critically acclaimed books include The Bedford BoysThe Longest Winter, and Escape from the Deep. He is also the author of The Liberator, which is being made into a drama series for Netflix, available in 2020.
