June 2019 will be the 75th anniversary of the Allied invasion of Normandy during WW II, and just after the centennial of the end of WW I. While this BreakAway focuses on wars of the 20th century, northern and eastern France have been the battleground for conflicts and power struggles for much longer than the last century. While D-Day is the main focus at the beginning of this BreakAway, toward the end of the trip students will also encounter the earlier “Great War” deeper inside the continent. Indeed, from the medieval Tapestry of Bayeux that commemorates the Norman Conquest in 1066 to the bunker remains at Omaha Beach, from the trenches in the Alsatian hillsides to the Nazi concentration camp outside Strasbourg we will see evidence from an entire millennium of power struggles and conquests.
