33 The American St Nick

With the holiday season upon us I’ve a festive episode for you.

The US 28th Infantry Division landed in France in July of 1944. After fighting through the Bocage, and taking part in the parade through Paris to mark its liberation, they were sent to the Hürtgen Forest.

Badly shot up they we’re withdrawn and sent to a small town in Luxembourg called Wiltz.

To tell the story of the American St Nick I’m joined by Peter Lion whose book “The American St Nick” tells the story.
