This splendid and timely book will be invaluable to those visiting the battlefields, sites, museums, memorials and cemeteries of the D-Day Normandy beaches, landing grounds and inland battles.
Although primarily intended to assist those planning and leading school groups and similar parties, it is also ideal for individuals and families making their own way. Rather than list every site it selects realistic itineraries covering the best places in the Normandy area. Even these are flexible to allow party leaders suitable discretion. As he did in his successful Guide to the Somme and Ypres Battlefields, the author provides invaluable information about each site such as its, context, visitor orientation, the narrative (the essential facts to engage, inform and entertain), suggested activities and relevant photos and maps. These are also valuable tips for lunch breaks, free form ideas and other helpful pointers.
Visiting the Normandy Invasion Beaches and Battlefields is strongly recommended for all those who wish to get the most information and enjoyment out of their pilgrimage to this fascinating area.
