The D Day Experience is special and unique to everyone who visits. The Normandy landings were the landing operations on Tuesday 6 June 1944, of the Allied invasion of Normandy in Operation Overlord during World War II. As well as the 5 beaches (Utah, Omaha, Gold, Juno and Sword), the Museums, Visiting the Cemeteries, you will be guided around battlegrounds and memorials in the country lanes and enjoy the atmosphere of the cafes and restaurants dedicated to celebrating and respecting the memories of all the WWII soldiers.
Below is a selection of the sights you can visit. We can provide recommendations and directions to places you want to visit; or a guide for the day or, as many come to enjoy, two days. For further information please visit battlefield.guide or email Adrian.
AMBUSH AT LA ROUGERIE
Given the strategic location of La Rougerie there was almost a month where the Americans (30th Infantry Division) faced off the Germans, (Battlegroup Heintz). During this time there were a few incidents in the local area and Adrian is able to discuss these with you as well as show you where an ambush occurred on his farmland, as well as show you the WW2 artifacts found on his land. Adrian prefers to not create a museum as there are already over 50 museums in Normandy focussing on D-Day alone - just ask to see the various artifacts found!
