If Canada came of age in the Great War of 1914-1918, then World War II saw the country become one of the chief players at the “table of nations” through its contributions, sacrifices, and leadership on the political and military battlefields across the globe. This remarkable 9-day itinerary highlights the role of Canada in the Second World War. We’ll cruise the River Seine, visit the hallowed grounds of Dieppe, and tour the D-Day beaches and battlefields. Led by world renowned historian, Dr. J. Marc Milner, with specially arranged talks by award-winning author, Alex Kershaw, we’ll retrace the steps of our forefathers, and learn about the history and heroism of those who came to liberate Europe from Nazi tyranny over 70 years ago.
