But D-Day and so many other crucial moments of the World War II—come to focus when you set foot in war rooms, battlefields and memorials that altered the course of history,” according to the Education First Educational Tours announcement. “From London to Paris to Berlin, consider the significance and remember the sacrifice of the Allied Victory.”

Students will embark on this epic adventure that includes stops at: Normandy D-Day Beaches and Memorials; Imperial War Museum; Churchill War Room; Notre-Dame Cathedral; Eiffel Tower; Topography of Terror Museum; Berlin Wall; Ardennes American Cemetery and Memorial.
