Introducing our Battlefield holidays

‘Without an enthusiastic guide, a battlefield is just a field.’ This is the motto of Barrie Friend MBA, MA (British First World War Studies) and Rhydian Vaughan (a former Welsh Guards officer and war historian), the two expert guides who accompany you on our three European Battlefield tours. Both Barrie and Rhydian are members of the Western Front Association, and are enthusiastic about sharing their knowledge, including some lesser-known tales of individual courage and tragedy. Titan’s South African battlefield tour is led by experienced local historians, and will introduce you to a region which most visitors to that country never see. The battles fought at Waterloo, the Somme, the Normandy beaches and Rorke’s Drift may be familiar from numerous books, films and TV documentaries, but for anyone with an interest in military history, there is nothing to compare with standing on the very spots where these momentous events took place, and learning more about the bravery displayed on those terrible days.
