D-Day Historian

Paul has become one the most well-known historians in Normandy. He has had the special opportunity to tour with countless veterans in the Normandy region. His knowledge of the battles and the area are second to none, and I would recommend Paul to anybody wanting to tour Normandy and learn about the real battles that took place.
