Battlefields Direct is aimed at smaller groups, who would like a customised tour of the 1st and 2nd World Wars battlefields of Europe. Brigadier Johnny Rickett combines deep historical knowledge, derived from years of study, with profound understanding from his own military background of what our soldiers must have faced at the time.
He will take you to places off the beaten track, which are not on the itinerary of most travel companies and will give you personal eyewitness accounts from the veterans he has met. You will not only see the battlefields and hear the history, but more interestingly, the stories behind them.
He has been taking tours all over Europe, including Crete, since 2009 when he formally retired. He averages around 25 tours a year during the spring and summer months.
