This year, 2019, marks the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Europe by the Allies in WWII. In commemoration, Rough Guides is releasing a book on the subject called “Travel The Liberation Route Europe.” Most of all, it’s a guidebook offering detailed travel help in nine European countries. The book also traces the footsteps of Allied soldiers in 1944-45 and tells human stories that defined their journey.
