Battle of the Bulge 70th Anniversary?
October 7, 2014 joedemadio 0 Comments
After the 70th Anniversary of D-Day, Operation Dragoon and Operation Market Garden, I’m happy to announce that I will be at the 70th anniversary of the Battle of the Bulge!
I recently received Ian Gardner’s new book: No Victory in Valhalla. Ian delivers outstanding research to the 3rd Bn. of the 506th PIR, 101st Airborne division. If you can’t get enough of Band of Brothers, I’m sure you will enjoy this master piece!
Shortly after receiving my book, I got invited to a special No Victory in Valhalla walking tour. Possibly, one of my best birthday presents ever. This tour will take place in Bastogne on December 14th and will last the whole day. I’m really excited to take pictures and film the battlefields around Bastogne. Thank you Ian for making this possible!
Since I’m a big fan of the 5th Infantry Division, I’ll probably spend some time in the Diekirch area as well. I planned to do an interview with the owner of the Diekirch museum last summer, but something interfered and we had to make plans for another time. The 70th anniversary might be another time for the interview!
Over the upcoming months, more details will be revealed regarding the events of the 70th anniversary of the Battle of the Bulge. On my website you will find a list of museums in the Bulge area. Bastogne itself has four museums, including the barracks, so make sure you plan your trip wisely! If you’re planning to visit the Bulge are soon, but don’t know what to visit, send me an e-mail and I would love to help you out! firstname.lastname@example.org
