We then trace Dick Winters' route with some of his men towards the Grand Chemin. Various things occurred during this journey that are not in the book or TV series, and you'll gain insight into the feelings and motivations of the men at this point. Here is where Colonel Strayer gave Winters the mission to take out the guns at Brecourt Manor, and after a stop at the monument. You will learn the real story behind this battle and stand overlooking where it all happened! I was the chief on-site historian/expert for the BBC for an archaeological investigation there in 2011, so again I can back up my histories with scientific proof.
