Honoring the Unsung Heroes of D-Day

D-Day has been honored in a variety of ways throughout the years, from being depicted in iconic films and chronicled in an influx of documentaries and novels. Ahead of the 80th anniversary, historian and journalist Garrett Graff has chosen to honor D-Day in a uniquely intimate way this year in his new book, ‘When the Sea Came Alive: An Oral History of D-Day’.


Garrett joins Martha to explain why he chose to write an oral history on D-Day instead of a straightforward book, how the powerful stories he heard during the interview process impacted him, and why it’s crucial to remember the heroism and value so many demonstrated on June 6th, 1944.
