  2. Audio tour Summary

    It can be a very moving journey visiting the Normandy Beaches where the invasion by American, British and Canadian troops came ashore to liberate Europe in 1944. Normandy like much of Europe had been occupied by German forces for four years. The drama of the freeing of Normandy makes for a fascinating few days for the history buff – and ordinary tourists too.
