10 Malmedy, Belgium - shards

“Returning from Aachen I drove through Malmedy in eastern Belgium, an area that Hitlerís Reich had early claimed. As I continued on a road map outlined for me by our planning section, I rounded the brow of a hill to get information from an Artillery Unit. Looking down on the valley near Monschau I saw a pillbox surmounted by a windblown Nazi flag. On the advice of an artillery officer I altered my return route. If I had continued I would have run right into German forces.”
