BB_NI_Bovington_D12

Introduction

This 12-day tour combining our Battle of Britain and Normandy Invasion Tour is perfect for those that want to follow the development of D-Day from idea to execution. We start in England, where we delve into the Battle of Britain, honoring the tenacity of the locals who lived for months under constant German bombardment. We lay the foundations of Operation Overlord from code-breaking at Bletchley Park to designating the D-Day landing sectors at Southwick House. We then cross the English Channel to see the implementation of the invasion by visiting all five landing beaches, with emphasis on infantry and airborne operations as well as recognizing the paramount roles that naval and USAAC support played on June 6, 1944.
