Google creates online exhibit for 70th anniversary of D-Day

Posted Jun 6, 2014

Google has launched a new collection as part of the 70th anniversary of the D-Day landings through a partnership with the Cultural Institute.

The exhibit features 470 documents and images, including a prayer written by Franklin D. Roosevelt on D-Day and a top secret progress report from General Eisenhower to General Marshall.

Google split the materials into five separate exhibits. You can sort the items chronologically and switch between two different viewing modes.

One viewing mode shows items individually and the other spreads them into a top-down grid. Google also partnered with The National Archives, The George C. Marshall Research Foundation, The Imperial War Museum, and Bletchley Park.
