A Recent Review of this tour

It is a long tour, but if you have an interest in WWII, then take this tour. I have read dozens and dozens , if not hundreds of WWII books, but this tour contains things that need to be seen. I highly recommend. I have gone to Normandy several times, and this is a great way to understand why the Germans expected Calais to be the main invasion point. You also have to be amazed at the effort to create the Atlantic Wall and also the effort to hide the V1 and V2 facilities.
