Battle of the Bulge

Welcome on our brandnew website about the battle of the bulge!

As creator of the page, I found it time to move on.
Our researchteam is researching in area’s that are to far away from this tiny beautiful hamlet. It has nothing to do with Grandmenil.
And so we did, we moved out, creating a new website.

Our latest:
Battle of the bulge commemorations 2019-2020!
Longread: The defence and fall of St Vith
New story: Corporal of Horse John Jenkins, a forgotten hero.
We placed a video on the Henri Chapell page
The Story of Pol servais (click to go there directly!)

houffalize-areaYou probably know that Adolf Hitler launched his last massive attack on december 16th 1944. His troops crushed into the Ardennes, causing so much trouble for the small, green troops who were defending the Belgium/Luxembourg border. The US army stepped in and a full war raged for a couple of weeks through the landscape.

Over the years many books were written about the Battle of the Bulge. Very good books and very bad books. In some cases history got polluted with well written fairytales.
Our researchteam is diving into the stories. We are focussed on the small or even individual stories. We are going to publish all these stories, added with all the sources we used, wich give you a unique opportunity to follow all the traces we used.
It is our goal to collect all these stories and publish them, so the stories of these brave men will be visible for the public and….never will be forgotten.

It is going to cost time. A lot of time. But, according to us, it is worth it.
The website will be dynamic, wich means that we will be adding stories more and more. So, in the beginning, just a few stories will be visible. Follow our Facebook page and you will be the first one to know that there is a new story!

On behave of our team,

Bob Konings
