Abstract:

The battle of the Huertgen Forest was one of the bloodiest of World War II. American and German forces suffered in excess of 60,000 casualties over a freezing six-month winter campaign. For the soldiers who survived, memories of the horror of that battle have continued to this day. This is a true story of a battlefield reunion of American and German soldiers nearly 55 years after they fought in the Huertgen. This time they meet in the spirit of reconciliation, but vivid memories from the war and unanswered questions are never far beneath the surface.
