At 6.30 a.m. on 6 June, after an intense artillery preparation and an effective aerial bombardment of the main German positions, the 4th US infantry division was engaged. Two squadrons of amphibious DD tanks were launched 3 kilometres from the shore. In the first 12 hours, 23,250 men, 1,700 combat vehicles and 1,695 tons of supplies were landed on this beach.
Patrick isn't one to shy away from travel and adventure. "I was lucky enough to travel the world with my job, discover different cultures, and meet incredible people!" he says, after having explored multiple cities across Europe and Asia. On his tours, you may catch more than a surprise or two about Paris. "In fact, it is an everyday experience. I'm a native Parisian, but every day, I continue to discover new things, new secrets about Paris. It's a never-ending story," he laughs. It was his love for Paris that led him to become a guide. "I'm a father and a teacher, and I realized that my passion was to share my knowledge, so I decided to be a guide about one of my passion: Paris!" Patrick chips in. "I enjoy sharing the love and passion I have for my own city, Paris. Its monuments, its history, its gastronomy, its culture, and all of its little secrets. I can't wait to share all of these with you!" "At the end of my tour I always give a virtual bise - two in fact being a good Parisian!" he laughs.

Continuing his weekend of D-Day experiences, Patrick clearly explained the battle plan for Utah Beach and the hardships faced by soldiers. The use of film clips enhanced this moving experience.
