Travelling from the UK we make our way to our hotel in Belgium for a one night stay. The following day we visit the beautiful town of Dinant before making for the town of Hotton, with its British and Commonwealth Cemetery, and seeing the Panther Tank at Grandmesnil. We then go to our hotel in Luxemburg, where we spend the following three nights.

Next day sees us following the route taken by the infamous Joachim Peiper, from the Schnee Eifel in Germany, through the small lanes and villages, covering the various atrocities, before arriving at the cross-roads just outside Malmedy, where the notorious 'Massacre At Malmedy' took place. Here we pay our respects and have a short 'Service of Remembrance'.

We then visit the cafe, where some of the troops took refuge. We continue on to the Hotel Moulin, where Peiper ate the breakfast of the fleeing Americans, and pay our respects to those shot at the small memorial outside. From here we cover the action at Trois Ponts before ending up at the Museum at La Gleize, where we see the fearsome King Tiger Tank.

Next day we see various memorials and pieces of equipment en route to the marvellous Museum in Deikirch, where we spend time looking at the artefacts and Panoramas so splendidly set out. Continuing south we visit the large American Cemetery in Luxembourg and see the grave of General Patton, before we visit Bastogne, 'Nuts City', see it's Sherman Tank, and visit the Mardasson American Memorial and Museum on the hillside.

Prior to returning to our hotel, we visit the isolated graves of the airmen shot down on their return from a secret mission over Germany, and who lie buried alongside their crashed aircraft.

On the final day we make our way back to the Port of Calais, visiting the Panther Tank at Grandmesnil on the way.
