Berlin, World War II, WWII, European tours, battlefield tours, Brandenburg Gate

No world capital has been more central to the history of the 20th century than Berlin. Now a vibrant modern metropolis, traces of the city’s turbulent past – whether as the hub of Hitler’s ‘Thousand Year Reich’ or as the front line of the Cold War – may be found on nearly every corner.

Spend a week exploring Berlin’s fascinating modern history on this unique tour led by CWEA/AHF faculty member Stuart R. Dempsey. From the Reichstag and the Brandenburg Gate, to Sachsenhausen concentration camp, the battlefields of the Seelow Heights, and the remnants of the Berlin Wall, we will delve deeply into this pivotal city’s past.

This tour is offered through Stuart’s company, Battleground Tours, in association with the American History Forum.

On the afternoon of Friday, July 3, 1863, following an intense artillery barrage, 11,500 Confederates from Alabama, Mississippi, North Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia began to march across the gently undulating farm land between Seminary Ridge and Cemetery Ridge at Gettysburg. In so doing, the men of Pickett’s Charge stepped into the realm of legend.
