"History Nerd" V-neck shirt with WWII Paratrooper - 75th Anniversary of D-Day
Our exclusive History Nerd design with a World War II paratrooper on the front, and on the back, "Operation Overlord", "75", and the dates June 6, 1944 and June 6, 2019 to commemorate the 75th anniversary of Operation Overlord, D-Day, and the invasion of Normandy Beach. This is the same design that is on the crew neck shirt.
Includes a special 3" x 4.75" hang tag with the "Orders of the Day" that went to the troops that morning on one side and, on the other side, the handwritten message that General Eisenhower drafted the night before in the event that the operation was not successful. Read more about the hangtag here.

The shirt: A super soft 4.3 ounce t-shirt from Next Level that is 60% cotton / 40% polyester jersey and that has been pre-washed to reduce shrinkage. Click on the "See size chart" button below to view the measurements before you select your size. Based on the feedback from buyers, one of whom characterized it as more of a "feminine fit," you might want to order a size larger than you would if you were ordering a standard men's/unisex shirt.
If you have never worn a high-quality poly-cotton shirt before, you’ll want to read this first.
More on the commemorative hang tag: A 3" x 4.75" piece of paper, in color, on uncoated stock. Read more about the hangtag here.
Thanks to Ben Powers for his helpful suggestion about the shirt color—not as dark as the shirt we use for the WWII soldier shirt—and for additional information for the hang tag that helps deliver an even more powerful account of what actually happened.
And thanks to Larisa for getting this all going by pointing out the anniversary last fall and encouraging me to come up with a special design even though, up until then, almost all of our designs were focused on the Revolutionary War.

Tremendous quality and fast shipping. I will be back for more.
I absolutely love my History teacher shirt! It fits great(order one size up from your usual size)and looks wonderful!!
My two shirts were carefully packed with some additional free historical bookmarks/post cards! The quality of the shirts is exceptional. I can’t wait to order more!
This is the perfect tee for me! I'm working on my PhD in History, colonial and Revolutionary, and although I'm not a history teacher, I do teach history in my job as a genealogy librarian. The tee is so soft and comfortable; because I'm a big fan of dark purple, I naturally would like to see more purple on the History List!
It runs a little bit small, but the quality is great.
I love the ladies V-neck version of this awesome shirt depicting the "Revolutionary Superheroes" we history nerds all know and love in a softer, more feminine fit. I will be buying another and am hoping for more color options and maybe a long sleeve version for winter! 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸
I love this shirt so much!
I love my new History Nerd shirt in military green, soft and flattering, and it's a very pretty color! I'll wear for my granddad who was in D-day and the Battle of the Bulge...
