To visit history’s great battlefields is to be drawn back to the epic struggles, the heroism, the victories and disasters that shaped today’s world.
No-one with any sense of history, or sympathy for humankind, could stand on The Somme – or visit Prague to learn about Heydrich’s Final Solution – without experiencing a shiver of dread.
No enthusiast of military history could spend a day at Waterloo without appreciating the importance of the nine desperate hours that ended Napoleon’s European ambitions. Or realise that they were also following the footsteps of the British Expeditionary Force as they retreated from Mons – pursued by the Kaiser’s troops but protected, as many Tommies reported, by Angels and English bowmen.
Our escorted tours, to a whole range of important battlefields and historic sites, include the insight and knowledge of leading military historians. Ask our Consultants about creating a tailor-made itinerary to suit your group.
