Step back in time to the Spring of 1944 where Allied troops are training for the forthcoming D-Day Invasion. You can watch the soldiers cleaning weapons, checking their kit and drilling.

Meanwhile on the coast of France, German troops are also training within an old French fort for the long awaited Allied invasion but where and when will they come? The fort will echo with drill commands and marching hob nailed boots.

At 15.00 each day you can witness an Allied attack on a German coastal defence position that poses as threat to the invasion fleet.

Will the Allies intensive training pay off or will the Germans prove too tough a nut to crack?

The World War Two Living History Association is an association of like-minded hobbyists and militaria collectors whose prime aim is to preserve and display the weapons, equipment and personal items of the armies that operated in North West Europe during the second world war.
