Battle of the Bulge Tour  
Day 1 travel from UK to Belgium

Day 2 We study the 6th Panzer Army as it rolled into Belgium and clashed with the US 2nd and 99th Divisions near Elsenborn ridge. Dragons teeth Tank obstacles and numerous Armoured Vehicle memorials abound in the area which saw the northern attack by the Germans on the morning of 16th December 1944. Our focus will look at the actions around Elsenborn ridge and the villages of Krinkelt and Rocherath.
Day 3.
Following Kampfgruppe Peiper. The charismatic battle-hardened SS commander Joachim Peiper was to achieve the deepest penetration of Allied positions but ultimately a combination of poor logistics, destroyed bridges and dogged US defence led to its failure of reaching the Meuse. We visit Lanzareth where US troops of 99th Division, hopelessly outnumbered, begun the first of many delaying actions and also the scene of the infamous Malmedy massacre. 
We finish at La Gleize and the King Tiger Tank memorial.

Day 4 Bastogne
The Town encircled for 7 days by German advances but which held out until relieved on 27th December. Our tour looks at the 101st Airborne “Band of Brothers” Division positions in town and at Bois Jaques and Foy. Visit the Mardasson memorial and the Sherman Tank turrets that ring the town today as well as Bastogne museum.

Day 5 Travel and return to UK.
