          This site is our personal tribute to honor the men who came from overseas to give us back our freedom 58 years ago. We have to remember that a whole generation did so much sacrifices to allow us to live in a free world.

          We are three young men : Eddy LAMBERTY from Grand-Halleux, Claude ORBAN from Rochelinval and Sébastien ANDRE from Bergeval. These villages are in the Salm valley area in the Ardennes forrest. For a long time, we have been interested in the Battle of the Bulge and we particularly have a great interest in the events that took place in our area from the 16th of December 1944 to the liberation in January 1945.
