Specialist Expert-led Expeditions to 20th Century Battlefields in the Pacific & Asia
From lush tropical islands in the South Pacific to sweltering triple canopy jungle in Southeast Asia, WAR HISTORIAN BATTLEFIELD EXPEDITIONS takes you off the beaten path to some of the remotest and less traveled battlefields of the 20th century. We take you to the invasion beaches, put you in the foxholes, examine the relics of war, and hump through jungle in order to experience military history from a unique "boots-on-the-ground" experiential perspective that just cannot be obtained any other way than by being there and walking the original battlegrounds. Visiting these places is more than just sightseeing. When you experience firsthand the rugged hills, the dense fetid jungle and tropical climate of these battlefields, history comes alive. On our expeditions you will also experience the culture, customs, sights and sounds of the beautiful and vibrant countries we visit. Battlefield expeditions for a new breed of war heritage traveler and those who truly want to experience military history and walk the ground where battles were won, lost, and history made. It’s one thing to read the books, but another to actually walk in the footsteps of history!
UPDATE MARCH 2020: Due to the current global Coronavirus pandemic, we are suspending all expeditions until further notice. Thank you for your cooperation, understanding, and patience regarding this. During these uncertain, frightening, and trying times, our bottom line is not more important than the health, well-being, and safety of the participants on our expeditions. The current travel restrictions due to Coronavirus will be in place for some time, but as soon as deemed safe to do so, upcoming expedition dates will be announced. At this time we do not want to be rash or reckless and set any dates as the current situation with Coronavirus is very fluid and changing on a daily basis. With that said, next up is definitely our SOLOMONS EXPEDTION. We are hopeful the pandemic will subside so we can schedule the SOLOMONS EXPEDITION for 4th Quarter 2020, but if need be, we will push it back to 2021. Our 80th PEARL HARBOR EXPEDITION in 2021 will be happening to coincide with the 7 December anniversary. Dates for our OKINAWA and VIETNAM expeditions will be determined accordingly. In the meantime please stay safe, stay home, take precaution, practice social distancing, and listen to what the medical experts say. This period of lockdown and isolation is a good opportunity to catch up on reading - be sure to check out our recommended reading list. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience and truly appreciate your support and patience as we navigate this challenging time. We look forward to the day this global pandemic is behind us, and we look forward to having you join us on our forthcoming expeditions!
