Hi Guy's and girls,

 

i'm back from a well diserved vacation.piliot.gif  Me and my whole family made a trip in the Ardennes region and luxembourgh, and i stumbled on some very intresting monuments regarding "The Battle of the Bulge"

I just wanted to share them here, i hope that's ok.

 

Ou're vacation house was not far from the Houffalize region, so i had to make a visit to the Panther that is on display at Houffalize.

And as last a real jewel

 

La Gleize was the place where Kampfgruppe Peiper was put at hold by the allies. All theire equipment was left behind, and also was this King Tiger. A local lady bought the tank from the allies for a bottle of cognac, and so today this beast still rest as a rememberance for those who gave theire lives for ou're freedom.
