About the Author

Paul Woodadge has been a regular visitor to Normandy since 1986, having been told tales of the invasion by his late great uncle, Cyril, who landed on Sword Beach on D-Day as an officer in the Royal Ulster Rifles . Prior to moving to Normandy in 2001, Paul was involved in WWII history in numerous ways. For twenty years he was a WWII re-enactor and living historian travelling to and organizing events all over England as well as in France and the Netherlands. He was also the owner of two WWII military vehicles, a British Morris C8 1944 cargo truck, and with his father, an American White Scout Car. Paul was also an active associate member of several WWII veterans' associations. Since establishing himself in Normandy, Paul has become internationally regarded as both a battlefield guide and also as a "friend of the WWII veterans." Paul's passion and enthusiasm for showing people the historic sites in Normandy has made him the "go to guy" for many organizations and fellow historians around the world.

Between 2002 and 2010, together with his wife, Myriam, Paul ran the highly successful D-Day tour company - "Battlebus." A large scale operation with multiple guiding staff and five minibuses, Battlebus was a five day a week, three hundred sixty-five day a year, business. Ultimately, the administrative side of the business was keeping Paul from guiding and writing, and with some members of the guide staff moving on to new ventures, Paul decided it was time return to his roots and concentrate again on guiding his own tours. Running Battlebus was an honor and to have taken so many thousands of people on tours was greatly rewarding; however, since the beginning of 2011 Paul has returned to working as an independent guide or "Site-Specific Historian" as he prefers to be known. 2011 and 2012 also saw him work for the BBC in the UK on a series called "Dig WW2" and continuing as a consultant to authors, galleries, and a high profile WWII foundation in the U.S.
