Belgium Ardennes, Bastogne

The Siege of Bastogne is probably one of the best known incidents of WWII
and a symbol of the “Battle of the Bulge” It is also where the legend of the 101st Airborne was made.
As a big fan of Band of Brothers, I've always wanted to visit the forest in Bastogne.
I didn't know what to expect until I finally visited the Belgium Ardennes in Aprill 11, 2009.

The foxholes have been slowly filling with dirt and needles fallen from the trees
but remain mostly as if abandoned yesterday.
