This splendid and timely book will be invaluable to those visiting the battlefields, sites, museums, memorials and cemeteries of the D-Day Normandy landings. It is intended for those planning and leading school groups and similar parties but is also ideal for individual/family visitors.

Rather than list every site etc it provides realistic itineraries to the best places in the Normandy area. Even these are flexible to allow party leaders suitable discretion.

The author provides helpful information for each site such as its context in the War, visitor orientation, the ‘spiel’ (the essential facts to engage, inform and entertain), suggested activity and relevant photos and maps.

This combines to make every visit of maximum benefit and interest and yet reduce the workload of the party leaders.

There are also valuable tips for lunch breaks, free time ideas and other helpful pointers.
