WAR! (Battle of the Bulge new footage!)

by Bas Huybers November. 10, 2008 2917 views

A couple of rare pictures of the Battle of the Bulge.
These pictures were taken around La Roche fall 1944
(or october 2008 for some of you who have no fantasy at all ;-) )

The last picture is a unique picture of the photographer who shot all of these pictures. wow!

our new tank after taking some hits

under enemy fire

the only road to the next village ‘La Roche’

amazing animals which came down from strange round sourcerlike german aircrafts

watch the treeline! We were a sitting duck in this position.

important was the capturing of this hill, the farm in the middle was a huge supply depot.

the entrance to ‘La Roche’

our hideout which was a perfect sniper spot!

finaly the British troops came in to save the day

the next day we found a save spot to finally get some sleep

but the church was closed…

a photo of the new european tractor designs, they're fast and strong!

we took this watchtower to see the german go home

glad to leave this place

but first we all took a refreshing bath


extra photo: the photographer Sèbastiën Huybers himself before the capturing in april 1945… The germans took his topsecret device which we now today know as the digital reflex camera! This news came out last month revealing these photographs on this page from a 2kb pre-digital storage system called ‘the electric light saving device’ (ELSD). But the Germans called it ‘electriek stürm fuhrer kapture apparat’ (NSDAP)
