D-Day tours can be emotional experiences. As you look across the sandy beaches of Normandy, you envision the 24,000 Allied soldiers who invaded France on June 6, 1944 and started the beginning of the end of World War II.
It's amazing how close the battlefields of Normandy and the D-Day beaches are to the city of Paris, yet it took the Allied troops another two months, two weeks, and five days to liberate Paris.
