*** BEFORE TAKE OFF BRIEFING OPERATION OVERLORD ***
Anyone taking our Normandy sky tour finds it helpful to have an idea of the scale of Operation Overlord - the naval plan was code named Neptune - and the pages linked through the photos are worth a glance to understand some of the events before America's entry into the Second World War. Many visitors to our website probably know much of what is set out on the briefing pages. Please grant us your forbearance. We try to ensure that those less familiar with the background to D Day, particularly the young, start their tour with a sound conception of what was at stake thereby making their time with us all the more worthwhile and enjoyable.
We have added some editorial pages about today's events - and their potential consequences - for the constantly growing readership for these articles. We try hard to keep the pages up to date with the very latest news but sometimes we need to allow ourselves enough time to sound out those directly involved.
