Normandy WW2 Trip Report, Episode 116

Category: Normandy & Brittany


Normandy WW2 Trip Report with my guest, Phil Roberson, who  shares his great passion for WW2 history, how he has visited many battle landmarks in Normandy, and the appeal they had for him (and possibly you too!)

D-Day happened on June 6th, 1944 and there has been extraordinary interest and curiosity about Operation Overlord or the "débarquement" as the French call it.

The American cemetery in Colleville-sur-Mer receives one million visitors per year. Would you like to be one of them? Listen to this episode to find out why it is such a popular visit.

  1. I listened to most of this interview, and would have found it much more interesting if Phil’s part was not so loud. I could barely hear you, your questions or comments. I do listen to all of your podcast episodes and find them really interesting and informative.
