For more than two and a half years the Allies planned and gathered their military strength to launch a decisive amphibious invasion of northern France, and in anticipation of the invasion, Hitler stockpiled reserves in the Atlantic Wall defenses, determined to keep the Allied forces at bay. There would be no second chance for the Allies: The fate of the continent hangs upon this day and there is no plan to evacuate the troops in a failure. Join us on a seven-day tour visiting the sites and walking the beaches that became the backdrop for one of the most written about invasions in history, and the turning point of the war that changed the world.
