Hello my fellow CSers

Just wanna to check if anyone of you have been to any historical battle site before ?

Places like
1) Normandy/Omaha beaches
2) Pearl harbour
3) Stalingrad [Present name today is call Volgograd]
4) Kursk
5) Midway Islands
6) Iwo Jima
7) Okinawa
8) Toburk
9) Kota Bahru/Slim River
10) Any other battle sites or ancient battlefield (Vietnam, Korea, Africa or any part of the global world)



Battlefield Tour, is a unique tour, which focus on the places where war history, soldiers and civilians, tactics and weapons happen at a particular place and at a particular time.
If you have been before, do share your experience, research, planning and etc.

Looking for people with the same interest here. :)



Also, some of the battlefield areas where I have been before.
Hope it can ignite all of you with ideas and inspiration who is keen on battlefield tour.

I do too, would love to visit the islands in the Pacific involved in the Second World War, not too much the fronts in Europe though. Ah, Arizona Memorial as well.

Sadly it'll have to wait :(

Taken at Hiroshima when I was there in 2003. A-bomb dome. This is what remain after the detonation of the Atomic bomb.

Hiroshima, though not sure if its considered a battle field per se. But I must say the on-site museum was pretty good and exceeded my expectations.

For Pacific areas, Okinawa is one of my listing,
the cost (air ticket and hotel) would be around $1500 per person.

Something to think about, thanks :D

Want to visit Midway, Peleliu and maybe Guadalcanal. Wonder how to get there though. Probably ferry from a larger island.

i heard Europe is good for WW2 sites visit. Russia actually left a lot of tanks and artillery pieces untouched at Kursk. For Normandy.. the D-DAY bunkers and big guns are still there. The best will be Eagle Nest, Wolf Lair ... which many still intact.

there is also a German U-Boat base in France, think it is called Brest, the super-structure is still there and the U-Boats actually moored inside, protected from air raids.

Not sure about Peleliu.

For Midway, will need to transit via Hawaii.

For Guadalcanal, will need to transit via Sydney I believe.

There's no monument or anything to commemorate any battles in both Kota Bahru (near my mom's hometown) or Slim River (my dad's childhood residence). :sweat:
