Bastogne, as you’ve never seen it before.

Even the most casual of historians know that the sleepy little village of Bastogne became the center of attention during the Battle of the Bulge in December of 1944.

The First Division Museum in Catigny has an exhibit commemorating the battle opening tomorrow. In Lego!

    1. One would think there would be such a statue to BG McAuliffe. I love that part of the movie where the German officer asks what the American response was and is told “NĂ¼ssen” and the German Commander is utterly dumbfounded. Cracks me up every time…”Battle of the Bulge” w/Fonda, Ryan, Nielson, Bronson, and Ty Hardin if memory serves plus a youngish Robert Shaw as the point of the spear for the Germans…I think that’s the one.
