Arras and Vimy Ridge:
This tour is a great follow-on for anyone who has been to the Somme and Ypres and would like to discover more about this neglected, though fascinating battlefield. We concentrate on the British, Canadian and Australian attacks in the Arras sector in spring 1917.
Join us as we follow the Western Front studying some of the lesser known battlefields of Loos, Givenchy, Neuve Chapelle, Aubers Ridge and Fromelles. This tour provides excellent information for the area between the Ypres and Somme and battlefields.
For anyone with an interest in the Great War this tour is not to be missed. Launched by the Germans in February 1916, the battle was designed to bleed the French Army dry. Highly atmospheric, the battlefield is a humbling place full of cemeteries, memorials, original fortifications and trenches left as they were after the fighting.
Mons to Le Cateau:
On this tour we visit these two historically important towns and their surrounding battlefields where the first and last actions of the Great War took place.
Cambrai and Hindenburg Line:
An often-overlooked area, this area saw the first large-scale tank attack in history at Cambrai in November 1917. We will look at this fascinating battle, continuing along the Hindenburg line fortifications where we study some of the lesser known actions of 1917 and 1918.
