Produced by CGJ Member John Gaffey, the documentary will feature the valiant effort of the outnumbered 28th which slowed the advances of the Panzer Divisions speeding towards the village, Bastogne , a key objective of the Germans in their “last gasp” attempt to drive a wedge into the Allied forces and recapture the initiative on the Western Front.

The documentary will last approximately one hour and free popcorn will be provided. While there is no admission fee, please remember that the museum operates on donations, and donations are welcome.
