The Battle of the Bulge (1944-45)

The Battle of the Bulge (1944-45)

June 05, 2004

The helmet pictured above was found near Wiltz, Luxembourg. It belonged to an American soldier who took part in the "Battle of the Bulge". The battle was the last major offensive by the German army before they were pushed back into their own country and were defeated. Many of the American soldiers (maybe even the one who wore this helmet) took part in D-Day and fought all the through to Germany 7 to 8 months later.

The helmet is a part of my collection.
