The village of Malempré during the Battle of the Ardennes


Situated on the road from Trois-Ponts to Hotton that the German armoured columns wanted to use, the village was the scene of heavy fighting in the face of the advance of 2. SS Panzer, which succeeded in occupying the village on Christmas night. But in the first days of the Allied counteroffensive, the village was liberated by American infantry and armoured units.(Text source by Guy Blockmans / OPT)
