Battlefield tours of France - help with planning

edited September 2009 in - France
I am looking for advice on doing a tour of France battlefields from World War 1 and 2. I want to see the Normandy landing beaches, Maghinot line, Dunkirk perhaps and any other sights of significance. Is it best to do this as an organised tour or via self-drive with a guide book? Any good guides or books, please recommend. I have 1 week to spend on this part of the trip. Any advice or experiences appreciated, thank you. BB

    Did this tour this morning with Rick. He was a fantastic guide and teach Ed. His instructions for the Segway were very clear and as a result I felt very safe whilst using it. It was great fun to ride, although would recommend rugging u p as much as possible as the breeze was very cool. Rick gave a great commentary on the sights we stopped at and also some good tips on things to do and places to eat at whilst in Paris. Overall the company was very friendly and knowledgable and a fantastic first experience in Paris. We highly suggest
