Normandy

Tour Introduction

Four long years after the dark days of Dunkirk, Allied forces launched the biggest and most ambitious military operation the world had yet seen with the invasion of Nazi-occupied Normandy. Anglia’s tailor-made tours will bring to life stories of courage and fear, disaster and success, as inexperienced soldiers leapt into the darkness of French skies or struggled ashore on bullet-swept beaches.

Your expert guides will examine the complex operation from the British, Canadian, American and German perspectives, visiting a variety of locations along the 50-mile landing zone. Over the course of your school’s tour it is possible to focus on whatever elements of the story are most relevant to your students, from the experience of the men taking on this most daunting of challenges to the uniforms, weapons and equipment utilized, some of it for the very first time.

As with most Anglia battlefield tours it is possible to combine this visit with others in a wider study of the development of warfare over time – please contact us for more details.
