In 1983 the Eisenhower Center at the University of New Orleans began a project to record the recollections of as many people as possible—civilians as well as soldiers—who were involved in one of the most pivotal events of the century. Skillfully edited by Ronald J. Drez and first published on the fifty-year anniversary of D-Day, the award-winning Voices of D-Day tells the story of that momentous operation almost entirely through the words of the people who were there. 

Stephen E. Ambrose (1936-2002), was Boyd Professor of History at the University of New Orleans and author of many biographies and histories, including D-day, June 6, 1944: The Climactic Battle of World War II and Upton and the Army.

Ronald J. Drez , a Marine company commander in the Vietnam War, received two Bronze Stars and the Vietnamese Cross of Gallantry. He is now assistant director of the Eisenhower Center at the University of New Orleans.
