About Us

Meet the Normandy American Heroes team

          RUDY PASSERA, WWII american Campaign Specialist


Specialist of the American Normandy campaign and beyond, I am the only Interpretive Guide who has worked both for the Normandy American Cemetery/La Pointe du Hoc & Utah beach museum.
Since 2015 I have had the honor to be the Master of Ceremony of the International Commemoration at Utah beach.
My passion for history was sparked by my father's passion of history and culture as we traveled worldwide.
After a successful international career with Halliburton Energy Services, I decided to put my business experience to work toward something that truly inspires me.
I chose to create my own company, Normandy American Heroes that would pay homage to those who fought and suffered during the Second World War, to honor the sacrifices made and educate younger generations on the meaning of courage, competence and devotion to duty.
As you now understand, historical tours mean a lot more than business to me, I see them as a bridge between Europe, the US and its allies and a lesson we all must learn from. Moreover it represents an honorable passion.
People need to perceive how Europe was before, during and after World War II.
Make your European Tour a memorable event that you will cherish all you life!

Richard Bass, Military historian


I have spent many years researching the links between American forces and the west of England during World War II following, by chance, a discovery of American wartime constructions hidden in coastal sand dunes. I uncovered the forgotten history of the U.S. Army Assault Training Center where troops trained for their spearhead role upon the beaches of Normandy. This information resulted in several books and DVDs chronicling the ATC history, lectures at Sandhurst Royal Military Academy and TV documentary appearances.
Several American units asked me to write their wartime histories, their battles for Normandy and throughout Europe, the detailed knowledge gained prompting me to work as a battlefield guide in Normandy and across Europe.
More recently I discovered vital new evidence concerning the infamous “Exercise Tiger” American wartime training disaster now detailed in book form and TV documentary.
I am delighted to be associated with Normandy American Heroes who offer the only tour ever to show the D-Day training grounds of thousands of American heroes.

Are you ready for the trip of a lifetime?
