Battle of the Bulge

Battle of the Bulge

June 17 to June 23, 2020

Led by Luxembourg native, expert battlefield guide Roland Gaul, prepare to walk in the footsteps of those brave Americans who faced the German onslaught in December 1944. This comprehensive tour includes the principal Battle of the Bulge sites in Belgium and Luxembourg. Visit Bastogne, where General Anthony McAuliffe of the 101st Airborne Division replied to a German demand for surrender with a single, pithy word: “Nuts!” Pay solemn tribute to the men massacred near Malmedy by the SS troopers of Kampfgruppe Peiper. Travel the “Bulge” from its north shoulder at Elsenborn Ridge to Diekirch, Luxembourg, in the south, while listening to the heroic stories of American soldiers who fought through bitter cold and snow to prevail against a hardened and desperate enemy.
