Operation Overlord, the Allied invasion of Normandy, was one of the pivotal battles of the Second World War and Operation Neptune, the amphibious assault phase, was the largest amphibious invasion of all time. Spread across five invasion beaches - codenamed Utah, Omaha, Gold, Juno and Sword - along a 50 mile stretch of the Normandy coast, naval personnel in 5,000 ships landed 150,000 troops, of whom thousands were killed or wounded. This tour of some of the most significant sites of the landings is a fascinating and extremely moving introduction to the events surrounding the D-Day landings. After a visit to Portsmouth where the HQ, Control and Command centre of Overlord was sited, the tour follows in footsteps of the troops in 1944 to Normandy and visits all five invasion beaches where the fighting is explained and placed in context and some of the individual stories of courage and bravery are re-told. Throughout, there will be illuminating talks on every aspect of the conflict from your expert guides, who hold a passionate interest in the subject.
