Geocache Description:


 

 

 

 

Band of Brothers – Bastogne – Part 6

 

This cache is dedicated to the brave men, who fought near Bastogne

during the WWII in the Easy Company, 101st Division of the 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment.

 

They depended on each other. And the world depended on them.

 

 

18th december 1944, in the dead of winter, in the forest outside of Bastogne, Belgium,

the men of Easy Company struggle to hold the line alone while fending off frostbite and hunger,

having arrived with no winter clothes and little supplies and ammunition.

Easy Company spends a miserable Christmas in the trenches, and receives the news

thatthe German army's demand for surrender was met with Gen. McAuliffe's defiant answer: "Nuts.”

 

My idea is to realize together with other geocachers a full cache serie on every area where E Company had been also in the DVDs.

So, if someone knows a cache like this one, please contact me, I’ll put a link here below. Thx.

A short easy multi-cache on the road leading from Bizory to Foy following the defense ligne through the forest, doing this cache by night should give you a special feeling about what happened here.
