Share "The Guns at Last Light: The War in Europe, 1944-1945" by Rick Atkinson

Event Details

D-Day marked the commencement of the final campaign of the European war, and Rick Atkinson’s riveting account of that bold gamble sets the pace for the masterly narrative that follows. Historic events come alive with a wealth of new material and a mesmerizing cast of characters. Atkinson tells the tale from the perspective of participants at every level, from presidents and generals to war-weary lieutenants and terrified teenage riflemen. When Germany at last surrenders, we understand anew both the devastating cost of this global conflagration and the enormous effort required to win the Allied victory.

Organizer

The Hauenstein Center at Grand Valley State University

Inspired by Ralph Hauenstein, we seek to provide a platform for emerging leaders in all three major sectors of public life – business, government, and nonprofit.  We promote civic engagement that (1) honors the Founders’ vision of a constitutional republic; (2) builds on existing democratic institutions that promote justice, freedom, opportunity, sustainable prosperity, and the rule of law; and (3) envisions the possibilities for creating better communities.
