Join us on a seven-day tour visiting the battlefields and walking along the beaches, bridges, and hedgerows that became the backdrop for one of the most written about invasions in history: D-Day.  For more than two and a half years the Allies planned and gathered their military strength to launch the decisive amphibious invasion of northern France to strike a mortal blow against the Third Reich. In the early minutes of June 6, 1944, Allied paratroopers and gliders descended from the night sky to wrest control of key bridges and roadways from the Germans. Behind them in the darkness of early morning, an initial force of over 130,000 servicemen from the Allied nations crossed a choppy English Channel aboard an armada of more than 5,000 ships. Tour Normandy with expert local guides and explore the five invasion beaches, visit Musée Airborne, Utah Beach Museum, Mémorial de Caen, the American Cemetery at Colleville-sur-Mer, and more.  This tour is for both the advanced and amateur historian in search of the most authentic experience of Normandy as it was.
