Why not a tour in the UK about the Intelligence : Beaulieu, Bletchley Park, etc. ?
Battle of Britain : airfields, martyred cities (Coventry, London, Plymouth, etc.).
Operation Dynamo : a part of the tour in France or how the BEF retreated from the frontline to Dunkirk; then in Dover, visit of the War Tunnels (Admiral Ramsey's headquarters) but also visiting some ports and studying the routes in the Channel (Navy supported by RAF).
Operation Tiger or how the rehearsal of D-Day became a disaster.
Allied Preparations for D-Day : PLUTO (Isle of Wight), camps, training fields (Scotland), Fortitude (3rd US Army in Kent), Tiger, cemetary where the victims of Tiger are buried along the railway London-Porstmouth.
The routes of the UK armies from D-Day to Berlin (UK zones).
Maquis du Vercors; Plateau des Glieres (French Resistance helped by the UK services); Oradour-sur-Glane.
The assassination of Heydrich in Czecoslowakia and the reprisals in Lidice.
What do you think of my suggestions ? What do you suggest ?
