We’re turning the clock back to the Second World War again this year. Only this time we’re returning to the centre of the war effort in Britain between 1939 and 1945.

As we did back in 2006, we will visit some of the most secretive locations in and around London, England, when wartimes in the British Isles were at their darkest and when people, places and events on the home front were turning the tide.

Among our stops this trip will be the D-Day Museum in Portsmouth, Winston Churchill’s war cabinet rooms under London, the Imperial War Museum, Bletchley Park where the Allies decoded the Germans’ Enigma transmissions, and the RAF Duxford Aerodrome home of the U.K.’s largest military aviation museum.

Decoding Enigma at Bletchley Park shortened the war by two years and likely saved 14 million lives, according to the postscript of the movie "The Imitation Game."
