D-Day Beaches

18th-21st June, 2018. Staying at Arromanches where the remains of Mulberry are visible, we visit UTAH, OMAHA, GOLD, JUNO and SWORD beaches, POINTE DU HOC, PEGASUS BRIDGE, MERVILLE BATTERY and other iconic sites of the Longest Day, June 6, 1944. On the beaches and inland, some German units, especially the SS, fought ferociously, making the Normandy Campaign as attritional as the Somme.
