7-day Battle of Normandy on a Budget - 2021

NormandyBattle_budget_D7

Introduction

D-day was only the beginning of the liberation of Europe, and our 7-day Battle of Normandy on a Budget Tour takes to you the beaches and beyond. General Patton threw himself into the fray at the head of the U.S. Third Army to exploit the first breakthrough and the fight culminated in the death or capture of 60,000 Germans in the Falaise Pocket. A new location for our tours is the Crisbecq artillery battery, where German defenders first spotted the Allied fleet on D-Day. This budget version gives you greater freedom in choosing your meals and gives you more free time to explore sites on your own.
