The Gang visits France as exchange students, visiting Omaha Beach in Normandy (where the Allies landed on D-Day in World War II) and Ypres (a World War I battle site).

Schulz described this special in his own words: “I kept thinking how interesting it would be if they should somehow get lost on this little trip and somehow end up at Omaha Beach and the scenes of the famous D-Day invasion of World War II. I even thought they might pass through Belgium and we could show some landscapes affected by World War I, and how emotional it could be if one of the characters somehow could be made to recite the immortal poem, John McCrae’s In Flanders Fields.” (from Peanuts: A Golden Celebration, 1999).
