Battlefields of Belgium Tour
A fascinating introduction to a wide range of military history and battlefields in Belgium from Waterloo to WWI to WWII. From Bruges we explore the field of Waterloo and jump 99 years to Mons in 1914 to look at the first and last shots of WWI. In Flanders we travel to Tyne Cot and war sites like the trenches at Hooge. We finish with the story of liberation in WWII, looking at places connected to the Allied liberation in September 1944. The amazing Liberation Museum sets the scene as we examine Operation Switchback, the Breskens Pocket and the battle for the Walcheren Island.
