The Battle of Normandy

During the Second World War, Normandy following the armistice of 22 June 1940, Normandy was part of the German occupied zone of France.

The Allies, involving Britain, the U.S, Canada and France coordinated a massive build-up of troops and supplies to support a large-scale invasion of Normandy in the D-Day landings on 6 June 1944 under the code name Operation Overlord.

The largest seaborne invasion in history, the operation began the invasion of German-occupied western Europe.

About the WWII tours

My tours are conducted with adaptability and respect. I will always keep in mind your expectations, and research a particular event, if needed, for example for the family retracing a veteran's steps. I have a comprehensive collection of maps and photos to make history come alive and help you come out of this tour with a brand new understanding of June 1944, Operation Overlord.

I'm proud and happy to make at your disposal my invaluable skills and knowledge, my Norman background, my teaching experience, my privileged contacts with local partners, and most importantly, my dedication at providing a professional, irreprochable and curteous service.
