A "Big Thank You" to the team at Scenic Car Tours for a most enjoyable WW1 Battlefields Tour. The tour was well planned and there were no hitches with any part of it, infact we all thought that the Novotel in Ypres was a really good choice. It has a large underground car park which is ideal for the type of vehicles on the tour, while its central location made it ideal for going to the Menin Gate to listen to the "Last Post", and also for visiting the Flanders Museum. To sum up a really enjoyable and at sometimes emotional tour, well planned with a good hotel. We would like to make this trip again around the same time in 2018.

My best regards, and thanks for making such a trip possible. David Allman


A Bridge Too Far - Officially known as 'Operation Market Garden', which includes the Battle for Arnhem, in September 1944, was the largest airborne battle in history, being bigger than Operation Mercury, the German airborne invasion of Crete in 1941, which was the only successful strategic airborne operation of World War Two.

The Dambusters - Immortalised in World War Two folklore as a result of their attack on the dams of the Ruhr. As part of the Allies bombing campaign against Germany during the war, the Dambusters wa an elite Lancaster bomber unit and the raid was led by Wing Commander Guy Gibson VC. How much impact the Dambusters raid had is still debated but what cannot be denied is the bravery of the men involved in the raid and the unique contribution made by Dr.Barnes Wallis who developed the unique bouncing bomb that was used on the raid.

The Great Escape - An audacious plan for a mass escape was put together in early 1943 by the man who became known as Big “X” Squadron Leader Roger Bushell, a captive RAF officer. The Squadron Leader was being held in North compound, the home of British airmen. In charge of the Escape Committee, Bushell channelled the effort into probing for weaknesses and looking for opportunities and shocked the committee with the scope of his plan. His plan was to dig three tunnels at the same time and to attempt to get 200 men out in a single attempt.

Colditz - Situated on a cliff overlooking a small East German town in the state of Saxony, it has stood on this site since the Middle Ages and has in the past been used as a workhouse and a mental institution. However, its place in history became assured during the Second World War, when it was Oflag IV-C, a prisoner-of-war camp for high-profile Allied officers who had repeatedly escaped from other camps. Colditz has since appeared frequently in fiction, including books, films and TV, but what is the truth behind this notorious Nazi POW camp?
