Produced by publisher St James’s House and military charity, SSAFA, VE Day 75 was officially launched on 8th May 2020. Written by experts including the royal correspondent Robert Jobson, VE Day 75 is a beautifully presented publication that tells the in-depth story of Victory in Europe Day. Featuring a wide selection of photographs from the day itself, the book documents the extraordinary events of 8 May 1945, honours those involved and reflects on how this victory has impacted on British society – right up to the present day.
As a global patent data specialist headquartered in London, Minesoft was thrilled to be approached by publisher St James’s House to be a part of this historic celebration.
CEO of St James’s House, Richard Freed, says “The VE Day book is a celebration of the generation that gave so much to provide us with the relative peace and prosperity that we’ve enjoyed over the past 75 years. Working with SSAFA has really brought home the extraordinary people and events that made victory in Europe possible. It’s been a real privilege to be part of these celebrations and to provide complimentary copies of VE Day 75 to the Nation.”
