From the outset, Chrstophe Rault, our guide, delivered a compelling narration complete with background details and side information. He brought to life the horrific but heroic charge our Canadian troops made onto Juno Beach at Normandy on D-Day. He detailed how soldiers traded their lives so that their comrades lived and of how our courageous troops met the curtains of lead fired at them by the pitiless Germans and kept going. He wove a story that included visits to actual bunkers, antipersonnel and antitank walls, air field memorials, and of course the Juno Beach Center where he filled in the details. Coupled with photos taken at the time, we relived those moments and shuddered to think at what these brave men accomplished. It was through Christophe's incomparable subject knowledge and artful story craft that we were moved at many instances throughout the day. I really liked that restaurant he took us to that was built upon a German bunker. I would recommend him to anyone wanting to learn more about Normandy or any other guiding area he is conversant in. This was a fabulous day for all of us. Thank you Christophe.
