The Contra Costa TImes published a guest commentary by Politics Professor Steven Sloane about the 70th anniversary of the World War II D-Day invasion. In the op-ed "D-Day reminds nation of why the 'greatest generation' was so great," which appeared online Saturday and in the CC Times' Sunday print edition, Sloane argues were it not for the generation of American soldiers who participated in the successful Allied invasion of occupied France on June 6, 1944, the world today would reflect the values and goals of the German dictator and leader of the Nazi party Adolph Hitler. Read the op-ed.
