    Typically, many Parisians leave the city in July and August for their summer vacations, but there is still plenty going on. Off top of my head, here are a few ideas: Bastille Day is on July 14 and features parades, a military display, and fireworks; Paris' Jazz Festival runs till July 29 (various events listed here: http://parisjazzfestival.paris.fr/en/); the final processional stage of the Tour de France rolls into Paris and up the Champs-Elysees on July 22; head down to the Seine to enjoy the scene of the annual Paris "plage", when sand and other seaside activities arrive for four weeks each summer, starting around July 20. Bon voyage!

    I asked my brother, who is in the British Army and has taken some tours of the battlefields, for some advice, and he suggested maybe looking at the British tour company, Holts (http://www.holts.co.uk/). However, their tours may be a little long and structured, plus are confined to certain dates. Another option might be Viatour, which aggregates local tours and offers a couple of Normandy WWII outings here: http://www.viator.com/normandy-tours/d183-ttd?pref=02&aid=g1285. These include a two-day trip that leaves from Paris and a daylong private tour from Bayreux (sounds like they customize based on interests, accessibility, etc.). Lastly, a Web search will throw up any number of tour options. This guy looks to offer a pretty interesting set of itineraries: http://www.ddayhistorian.com/, plus comes quite highly recommended.
