TRAVEL THE WORLD - OMAHA BEACH, NORMANDY, FRANCE
In 1999, we went to Omaha Beach early in the morning and were the only people there. It was easy to imagine soldiers landing and fighting to establish a bridgehead. We found the experience very moving. What impressed me most was how very narrow the beach is before the ground rises up to form quite a high hill, and consequently how difficult it must have been for the armies to gain a foothold.
