Normandy D-Day Beaches Tour

Written by on January 4, 2018 in Tours in France

Early in the morning on June 6, 1944, about 156,000 Allied soldiers stormed a handful of beaches along the coast of Normandy, France. The initiative was named “Operation Overlord” and it has gone down in history as one of the most dramatic chapters of World War II. Although choppy seas and heavy 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.
