You’d like to visit the Normandy beaches and battle-sites but are afraid you might not understand every word the guide tells you…
This can be annoying, if not completely turn you off and then you feel as if you’re losing out on valuable information ! But if your guide’s an American, then you know you’re not going to have any problems understanding.
A little about myself :
“Made in Texas, born in Normandy!”
Half-French and half-American with no accent in either tongue, I’ve got dual citizenship.
( my Dad & family live in So. California )
After several jobs travelling around the world and working briefly for CNN’s 60th D-Day anniversary in Normandy, I decided to settle down there and share my passion for WW2 especially about our forces in the Normandy campaign.
My Mom was born in Carentan* late July 1944
(Mentioned in “Band of Brothers” episode 3)
If it hadn’t been for American soldiers going thru the area… and if they hadn’t stopped at the farm to offer their assistance in taking my pregnant grandmother by jeep to Carentan, I might not be here to tell you about our family’s history…
