... train and the next one doesn't leave for another hour, so now I am enjoying a boxed sandwich and a beer. I guess balancing all the eggs yesterday helped me out. I managed to carry my bag, wheel my suitcase and manoeuvre the food tray with only one near spill. Unfortunately missing the train means I have an hour less to travel around Paris, but that's the way things ...

... is sugar coated. It is clear what has happened here. It is clear that a failure at this and the other beaches on the coast of France in 1944 may have changed everything.

At the end of the exhibits, we go to the beach. It is cold, and windy, and the waves are choppy and uninviting. I think to myself that this is exactly how I want it to be; exactly how it should be. This beach should not look nice, or inviting, or welcoming. The blood of so many has ...

No German soldiers were guarding them (they thought their camouflage job was good enough evidently?) so they threw grenades in the barrels and successfully completed the mission. It’s guaranteed that we didn’t do that story justice just now, but it’s just a small taste of the many inspiring stories we ...

... town to see an actual military glider plane and a C47 plane along with a collection of gear that soldiers carried into battle, military uniforms, and an assortment of other military artifacts. Very well done. From there Guillaume took us to a hill above 7-mile long Omaha beach where the Germans had an elaborate bunker system and a clear vantage point to defend the assault from the sea. Then he took us onto the beach while explaining all the details of the Allied invasion. Our ...
