Andrew Jameson: The Battle of the Bulge
The Battle of the Bulge
Andrew Jameson, Military Historian; Former Assistant Vice Chancellor, UC Berkeley
A veteran of the Battle of the Bulge takes us behind the scenes of the biggest and costliest battle ever fought by the U.S. Army, lasting from December 16th, 1944, to January 25, 1945. As many as 250,000 German soldiers and 1,000 tanks pushed the Allied line back during a very cold, snowy Ardennes Forest winter. Jameson, who was a decorated 19-year-old sergeant in the battle, will describe with visuals and maps both the German and American perspectives on this historic event.
