Walk With Us – In The Footsteps of Heroes
Walk the most famous and some of the almost forgotten sites of this vast D Day conflict.
Stay as guests at our timeless 16th century fortified Manoir that was itself a part of the Normandy battleground on the 6th June 1944. At the Manor we can provide accommodation for up to eight guests.
Dine with us the night before your tour begins and after breakfast prepare yourself for a day of standing in the footsteps of heroes.
Visit with our Tours the exact Normandy locations of not just the well documented D Day battles – but some of the thousands of less well known but equally bitterly contested skirmishes that took place in the first few weeks after D-Day.
See through our eyes the tragedies and successes of those first hellish days of 1944 when life itself was a tenuous day to day existence – and where comradeship was everything.
A deeply moving and personal experience
As an 82 year old who grew up in the U.S. during WWII, and as an avid WWII historian ever since, I was already familiar with the strategic and tactical outlines of D-Day and even much of the day's history at the small unit level. However, Ben's presentation of the D-Day events was far beyond what I had ever learned. He made the day deeply personal in the life of an individual soldier or airman and showed us where and how and why those personal events occured. I could not help but be moved, sometimes to tears. For the first time in more than 70 years, D-Day became more than a scholarly exercise for me. It was now imbedded deeply and permanently in my gut.And as frosting on the cake, Ben and Jay's home, hospitality, food, wine and conversation were beyond parallel. A once in a lifetime experience not to be missed!
