The book starts with a well written brief history of the Second World War, and then an overview of D-Day and Normandy. It then breaks down the two tours. Each Itinerary is contains selected locations and then context, orientation, a narrative and activities. Each location is also brought to life with various pictures and maps.
This is perfect for anyone with an interest in D-Day who wishes to visit Normandy. It is informative for an enthusiastic amateur, like me, but would elevate any group leader or teacher to a Professor of History level of authority.
It is not a casual read as the text is detailed and requires some concentration.
