This fascinating journey will begin in the lush province of Bataan, where tour participants will walk the first kilometer of the Death March and visit the remains of the prisoner of war camp at Cabanatuan, which was liberated by American Army Rangers and Filipino Scouts on the eve of the Battle of Manila.
Featuring an exclusive lecture series by internationally recognized historians James Holland and John McManus, PhD, this land tour and river cruise brings together the very best of The National WWII Museum’s flagship Normandy program with a whole new level of luxury—including world-class château accommodations and a five-star river cruise aboard the exclusively chartered Uniworld S.S. Joie de Vivre.
Adorned with medieval castles, wineries, and gorgeous landscapes, cruise along the spellbinding Rhine River. Gaze upon fairytale landscapes that were once the prime target during World War II for military planners looking to shorten the war and bring about the downfall of Nazi Germany. From 1944 through 1945, the Rhine was the most hotly contested body of water in all of Europe.
Walk in the footsteps of American soldiers who battled against Hitler’s "Last Gamble." Venture into the Ardennes and imagine the lush forests you encounter blanketed in snow, the way the American GIs found them in that harrowing winter of 1944 – 1945. This tour is based out of Clervaux, Luxembourg, situating guests in the ideal location to explore the surrounding areas where the Battle of the Bulge took place. Stops include Lanzerath, Elsenborn Ridge, Malmedy, La Gleize, Bastogne, the Luxembourg American Cemetery, and more.
