Expedition Elsenborn 2017

Next week members of our association will travel to the Belgian-German border to the places where the men of the American 2nd Infantry Division and 99th Infantry Division in December 1944 fought against German enemy and its elite troops. Both divisions in this time led one of the hardest defensive fighting in the whole Battle of the Bulge. The entire expedition is planned as part of our extensive project „Men of the 2nd Infantry Division 1940-1945“ and it has been going through several weeks of demanding planning involving the study of many historical sources, the memories of individual veterans and the preparation of many other matters and materials. Our objective is not only to visit the places of fighting, but also to remind soldiers from both mentioned divisions and acquire many materials (e.g. photos) for our project whose public introduce is slowly but surely approaching. So follow our information channels, where we will bring more news.
