Mission Day 1:

82nd US AB - alone on enemy territories

This first day is based on the parachutists of the 82nd airborne actions during the operations of June 6th, 1944 and the days that followed.

The particularity of the parachutists unites is that they will land and fight behind the enemy lines, encircled by enemies with only the equipment they were able to bring with them.

All the parachutists are willing, over trained and make proof of a great strength of character. The missions they accomplish bring them to be confronted to extreme war situation, often not planned and which have to be led by diverse groups of soldiers.

The main mission of the 82nd airborne is to secure the western perimeter of the Utah Beach sector and also the northern side, north of Ste-Mere Eglise.

Mission Day 2

4th US ID - The landing on the beaches.

Throughout the day, we will follow the path of the man from the 4th US ID who were the first ones to land on the beach of la Madeleine, which will later on be renamed to Utah Beach.

The great collaboration of the navy, the air force and the army which lead to the success of the Utah beach landing.

  • The air force and the navy successfully pounded the German defenses just about a few minutes before the arrival of the infantry.

  • The infantry, once landed, rapidly accomplished their mission of extending the beach head and established the junction with the parachutists who held their position since the precedent night.

  • Once the beach head was established, the navy, due to the artificial seawalls it had put in place immediately, assured, without discontinuity the Normandy landings, planified minutes by minutes, with thousands of man, vehicles and materials.

 

This day will make us travel throughout all those aspects to understand how the landings on Utah Beach, were a real success.

Mission Day 3

101st US airborne - The Southern Flank

Today’s activities are based on the parachutists of the 101st Airborne division actions during the operations of June 6th 1944 and the days that followed.

Just as the 82nd airborne division, the parachuting drops of the 101st AB division guy were very dispersed, and the three drop zones were pretty distant from one another, the bad weather conditions and the anti-aircraft fire from the Germans brought a lot of confusion to the situation.

The 101st AB division has for mission to secure the beaches exits by which the man from the 4th US ID will arrive, to neutralize the Germans battery of canons and to secure the southern flank of Utah Beach.

The 101st is also in charge of to establish the contact with the troops landing on Omaha Beach to prevent the isolation of the sector of Utah Beach, in order to do that, the capture of the town of Carentan is obligatory.

Mission Day 4:

 

1st and 29th US ID - The Omaha Beach Area

Throughout this day, we will visit the area of Omaha Beach, which has been called “the Bloody”, more than 2000 American soldiers have lost their lives in the first few hours of the Normandy landings. Here, in the contrary of Utah Beach, nothing happened the way it was supposed to happen, and the success of the operation is only due to the courage of the man engaged in the battle and the spirit of initiative of the American Navy.

The aerial bombing is ineffective and the barrage of fire by the Navy was insufficient.

The landing crafts deviate due to the sea currents.

While landing, the man finds themselves under the intense fire of the German defenses, they cannot liberate the beaches and the continuous flow of man and materials congestions the beaches at a very rapid speed, especially since the tides were rising, the strip of land was diminishing.

The sacrifices, courage and the spirit of initiative of officers and man still allows to penetrate the German defenses.

The navy, at the risk of grounding its ships, gets closer to the coastal lines to engage with efficacity the concrete German defenses.

The 9000 graves of the American cemetery of Colleville sur mer symbolizes the harshness with which the Normandy landings had happened in the area of Omaha Beach.

 

Breakfast

Formation about Leadership at the conference room in the  Manor.

Lunch at the manor

Departure in staff cars or touristic vehicles to the Omaha Beach area.

  • American cemetery of Colleville

  • Omaha Beach

  • Overlord Museum or La Pointe du Hoc

  • German Cemetery of La Cambe

 

Return to the Manor, free time

Second meeting of the day, we will use this time to debrief about how we can analyze and adapt what we learned through that experience in our businesses. 

Aperitif, debriefing of today’s activities, presentation of tomorrow’s plan.

Diner at the manor, discussion with the group.

 

The man who have fought on the beaches and in the back of them did it in a very organized way. Those men arrived as constituted units, with all material and logistical support.

The mission here is not to hold the objective but to move forward and the fastest possible to consolidate the beach head and by doing so, being able to resist against the German attack once it would happen.

The key word is attack, whatever it costs in man and material. From the success of this attack will depend the success or failure of the Normandy landings in its integrality. Every soldier knows that death can happen at the next assault, but every one of them also knows that there is the back, a zone of safety, where he could find a shelter. Note that this “going back” function does not exist for the parachutists.

The idea of Leadership has here another sense than the one with the parachutists, it has to be very powerful, wise, and merciless in a certain way. Man need to be convinced to move forward while being conscious of a danger of immediate death.

It is this other aspect of leadership that we will address throughout our trip at the heart of the Normandy landings.
