D-Day to Victory

poppyMy friend Julie works for the company that helped build http://ddaytovictory.ca. I quite like it, and wanted to share it before 11/11/11.

On the website, users follow the Allies, tracing their path from Normandy to Berlin on an interactive map interface, and exploring the key events that led to victory. The site depicts the intensity of war and its physical and emotional impact through innovative 3D scenes that visualize 'exploded views' of the attacks.

Within each 3D scene, users can access video interviews with the surviving heroes, their bios and artifacts.

It really puts everything in perspective. As Diefenbunker Tour Guide just said, it's time to start spreading the honey.

Mike, thank you so much. This site is amazing.

My Dad was in WWII and somehow managed to survive. My son, who is now 12, is going through his "war years" and has been finding this type of content fascinating. I will definitely pass it along to him.

Folks, this is worth a look.

Make sure you make time today to stop doing what you're doing, and pause at 11am.

It's the very least we can do.
