Battlefield Sites

Sharing our Passion With You

We want to share some of the sites which our tour guests found the most moving and the most fascinating when undertaking our tours. Some of these will be those which are well known and frequently visited. Some others will be less well known, but none the less fascinating. Choosing sites is always difficult as there are so many fascinating sites to see. We have chosen some to begin with. We hope that you enjoy reading them, whether you intend to travel to them or just want to enjoy them from home.
