WWII Comes Alive

The largest defeat of the American Army and the largest single battle of WWII will come to life Saturday, March 19 at the Pennsylvania Military Museum in Boalsburg, just three miles east of State College. The event starts at 1:30 p.m. and will feature the 2007 German-produced documentary “You Enter Germany- Bloody Huertgen and the Siegfried Line.”

Between September of 1944 and February 1945, the U.S. Army fought for control of a 50-square-mile area of dense forest along the Germany/Belgium border

The American Army suffered an estimated 56,000 dead American GI’s in the Huertgen Forest, more than the US Military lost in the Vietnam War. Ernest Hemmingway, who was an eye-witness war reporter, called it “The forest where dragons live.”

Along with a synopsis of the war, the story is told through archival footage and interviews with veterans.
