SPECIALIST EXPERT-LED EXPEDITIONS
TO 20th CENTURY BATTLEFIELDS
IN THE PACIFIC & ASIA
Pacific war - First Indochina War - Second Indochina War
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 quite another to actually walk in the footsteps of history!

We specialize in the Pacific War (WW2 Pacific & Asia), First Indochina War (French War), and Second Indochina War (Vietnam War). We travel to some of the most historically significant, yet remote and less traveled battlefields of the 20th century. Bryan T. Stefancyk, the founder of WAR HISTORIAN BATTLEFIELD EXPEDITIONS, is a Pacific War and Indochina Wars battlefield historian, and he is the grandson of a US Army combat infantry veteran of the Pacific War. He first visited the battlefields of the Pacific War in 2010 when he traveled to Okinawa for the 65th anniversary of the battle to follow in the footsteps of his then recently deceased grandfather. On this trip he accompanied a group of Battle of Okinawa veterans. Bryan is a firm believer the only way to understand and study a battle is to walk the ground. Only by experiencing the terrain and conditions firsthand by standing on the invasion beaches, humping through dense fetid jungle and up rugged kunai grass hills, sweating in the tropical heat, getting soaked by tropical rains, walking into needle-sharp “wait-a-minute” vines, crouching in the foxholes, and examining the relics of war can one truly understand these remote battlefields. He is fortunate to have walked these far-flung battlefields with veterans of the battles.
