Battle of the Bulge – Siege of Bastogne DVD Review
In one of my previous posts I reviewed the Siege of Bastogne. I mentioned that the constant pitch was a downside of the documentary. In Panzer Marche, this was not the case. The documentary was actually shorter, but much more powerful. The first part of the documentary focusses on how the Germans managed to surprise the resting 28th […]

D-Day 2015 Trip – Day One!
Day 2: Friday June 5th! Very Interesting Day 2 in Normandy! After breakfast we visited the new D-Day Experience at Saint-Côme-du-Mont. I can tell, this is the best museum I’ve seen so far in my life. The story of the paratroopers really comes alive in a huge hangar. The quality of the items is amazing […]

June 4th, 1944. Amazing first day in Normandy! We’ve witnessed a parachute dropping with a real C47 at Hémevez. On our way to this place we came across different sites of the 82nd Airborne Division. Just like last year the atmosphere is geat! I’ve taken an interest in the Filthy 13 and even bought the […]
