Eighteen years after its World Premiere, the HBO succes series ‘Band of Brothers’, based on Dr. Stephen Ambrose’s bestselling book, still encourages people around the globe to visit the battlefields of World War Two.
This September some of the most recommended Band of Brothers Historians take you on a thirteen-day tour starting with the invasion beaches and landing objectives of Normandy, across into Holland for a study of Easy’s role in Operation Market Garden, followed by a trip into the Ardennes to revisit its role in the Battle of the Bulge, a stop in Nuremberg in the spirit of “Why We Fight,” and a grand finale at the ruins of Hitler’s house and the Eagle’s Nest in Berchtesgaden.
Follow their steps like no-one has done before, a unique experience!
The 2019 Path of Easy Company Tour, offered by GBC Tours in conjunction with the Band of Brothers Family Foundation, is a one-of-a-kind blending of Easy Company history and culinary and travel excellence. With hundreds of hours of interviews and information about one of World War II’s most celebrated units, GBC Tours places the historical traveler on the very grounds that Easy Company fought, and tells their story the finest way possible…through the words of the veterans themselves. While there are many similar tours, none of them personalizes Easy Company’s war, quite like the Path of Easy Company Tour. For two weeks, you’ll travel across Europe, eating the finest foods and staying in the finest accommodations, all this while seeing the war through the eyes of the men of Easy Company.
Historians confirmed to join the tour: Joe Muccia (Normandy, Netherlands, Eagle’s Nest), Paul Woodadge (Angoville-au-Plain), Reg Jans (Bastogne, Battle of the Bulge), David Campbell (Tour Director, pre-production BoB).
