The historic town of Bayeux, France, will be the base for an Army Heritage Center Foundation tour of sites related to D-Day and the Normandy Campaign in France.  From Sept 24 – 29th, 2017, a small group will be guided by historian  Dr. Brooke Blades, whose research programs have led him to iconic sites to be visited including the Normandy American Cemetery, Omaha Beach, Utah Beach, and airborne landing areas near Ste. Mère-Eglise and Carentan.  The British and Canadian landing beaches and cemeteries, as well as interior sites such as the culminating battlefields between Falaise and Chamboise will be toured.  For the history enthusiast interested in in-depth information, including period photos, documents, maps, and reminiscences of battlefield commanders, this tour will be a rewarding experience. 

Accommodations will be provided by a three-star hotel in Bayeux. Travel through the picturesque countryside will be by motor coach to maximize opportunities to discuss sites to be visited.  Sponsored by The Army Heritage Center Foundation in Carlisle, PA, this tour is, in part, a fundraiser for the Foundation.  For details of the tour and a travel brochure, please contact Brooke Blades of NW Europe Study Tours at
