TOUR THE US AREA FROM BEHIND UTAH BEACH TO FAMOUS OMAHA BEACH
Enjoy an introduction to the complexity of D-Day invasion and Normandy battlefields. Starting with Sainte-Mère-Eglise where the 82nd airborne fought at night before the main landing on the beaches. Their mission was to cover the western flank and avoid german counter-attacks that aimed to capture Cherbourg’s deepwater harbour.
A minute’s silence will be lead at Utah beach and its strongpoint WN5. Later in the afternoon, reach « Pointe du Hoc », where rangers scaled a 100-foot cliff to attack a german garrison at this strategical german coastal gun battery. Then it will be time to walk on and explain Omaha beach, before the highlight of the day : the visit of the Normandy American military cemetary and its Memorial in order to pay tribute to the tremendous sacrifice of the American Nation among the allied forces.
