Our Winter War: The Bulge and Beyond DVD begins here and continues to mid-March as elements of the 79th Inf. Div. receive French awards in Mönchengladbach, Germany. The contents of this video show the action as it was originally recorded by the 163rd Signal Photographic Company during these historic operations. The footage in this video is intended to be strictly that of the 79th Infantry Division and only shows other unit footage when two or more units are intertwined. Combat Reels has located, researched and compiled all of this raw combat film footage, then reformatted it into the DVD format for your viewing pleasure.
79th Infantry Division DVD Highlights
Some of the highlights included on this 79th DVD are of men entering the towns of Bischwiller and Haguenau, France. The 79th then continues the push to the German border as they overrun the village of Soufflenheim. Then watch as the 79th cross the Lauter River as they enter into Germany. In late December the 79th is forced by higher headquarters to pull back to the Lauter River and then the Maginot Line. Engineers lay mines in the Bienwald Forest and later blow up bridges in the towns of Niederroedern and Haguenau. The 79th then fight fiercely in Drusenhiem and the Hatten/Rittershoffen area in a stellar defense. Finally after months of defense in Southern France the 79th is moved north to Luxembourg in February. The DVD closes with men from different Divisions, including the 79th receiving French Awards for Gallantry.
