D-Day, the Allied invasion of Europe in June 1944, was not only an unprecedented assemblage of military power and technology, but it also showcased a new, more complex form of warfare. In this week's Ask an Expert on Facebook Live, aeronautics curator Roger Connor will detail the high-point of the ‘Wizard War’ in which electronics and countermeasures often took center stage and provided a decisive advantage over the forces of Nazi Germany.
