    We are thinking of touring World War 2 area from 5th March for a few days. I know its a bit early.

    May not be many ( if any) campsites open. Most start from Easter onwards..
    Buy "all the aires" book that will give you a good start.
    Also there are lots of apps for smart phones and websites for stopovers..

    When we did the tour. started at Pegasus bridge and got leaflets and maps from there. Just found places as we went along.

    I know I did. :LOL: I posted this on another thread, must have been the coffee.

    Most of my bookmarks from previous Fun threads on Battlefield tours no longer work, maybe since Fun changed Servers but this one from the Telegraph has a few pointers though not necessarily for motorhome travel. As mentioned above Vicarious Books also publish a guide to the Great War and More, available for £4.99. Not sure if it's the same guide as I bought a year ago (it's in the van) but if so it was based on a tour the team had just done themselves and gives details of places to visit and, more importantly, Aires and parking places to visit the most important scenes of the wars.
