Victory in Europe Tour with Alex Kershaw
Thank you for your interest in joining the Friends of the National World War II Memorial and author and historian Alex Kershaw for a once-in-a-lifetime WWII “Victory in Europe” Tour of London, Normandy, and Paris.
The journey will begin in London on Wednesday, June 8, 2022 and conclude in Paris on Tuesday, June 14, 2022. In between, we will follow the Allied route from Portsmouth across the Channel to Ouistreham to make our way to Normandy…just as thousands of young Americans did 76 years ago.
Below is a brief overview of our journey together, with Alex Kershaw, as we experience “Victory in Europe”:
LONDON ~ Days 1, 2, and 3
We explore Grosvenor Square, the heart of the American presence in London during World War II.
We discover London during WWII with a visit to the Imperial War Museum and an exploration of Churchill’s legendary war rooms in Whitehall.
NORMANDY ~ Days 3, 4, 5, and 6
We relive the highlights of D-Day combat at Pointe du Hoc and on Omaha Beach before paying our respects at Colleville-sur-Mer graveyard.
We hear the story of the the American airborne operation on D-Day and the extraordinary success of the Utah landings.
PARIS ~ Days 6, 7
We liberate Paris, following in the footsteps of American troops who fought to the heart of the City of Light on August 25, 1944 after more than 1,500 days and nights of Nazi occupation.
