Back to Adventures ITINERARY ACCOMMODATIONS WHAT’S INCLUDED
Early in the morning on June 6, 1944, about 156,000 Allied soldiers stormed a handful of beaches along the coast of Normandy, France. Although choppy seas and heavy German resistance prevented them from fully meeting their objectives that day, they were able to gain a crucial foothold. By late August, Paris had been liberated, and Germany’s surrender came not long afterward. On this Adventure we will experience the two American landing points that, along with British and Canadian forces, kicked off the Allied invasion of Western Europe during World War II.
