In approximately 200 days the Allies finally crossed the river Rhine in full strength and were able to finally defeat Nazi Germany. Discover the operations and former battlefields with us, including well known and ‘off the beaten track’ locations and stories that shaped the outcome of World War Two. Hear, see and learn what it was like to experience this period in history at the locations where history was made.
We did a tour with Edwin following in the steps of my husband's father's cousin who was killed in the last days of the war. Edwin helped us trace the route he would have taken and found the spot where he was killed and the small bridge named after him. It was really interesting and made us very thankful that a previous generation sacrificed so much for us. Edwin's knowledge was excellent and he had really done his research thoroughly - thank you.
