Program

RELIVE THE BEGINNINGS OF THE BATTLE OF THE BULGE


The Battle of the Bulge, which lasted 6 weeks during the winter of 44/45, began along the Our River on the night of 15/16 December 1944. The penetration of the "von Rundstedt offensive" was a surprise for the Allied troops. The Clervaux area was particularly hard hit by the German strikes, surprising the American troops. The various localities, which served as strongholds for the Allied troops, were at the heart of the fighting between 16 and 18 December 1944. 

With our CEBA (Circle of studies of the Battle of the Bulge) guide, Tom Scholtes, you will have the opportunity to listen to the stories of the heroic battles of the Allies but also their defeats, like the Battle of Clervaux. These battles in the war are unfortunately not well known but just as interesting, like the one of the Baker Company at Marnach, of Colonel Fuller at Clervaux, of the pursuit of the Axis forces to Dasbourg-bridge,...
