In Season 2, Episode 2 on the WW2 Nation Podcast I am joined by Dr Peter Schrijvers as we turn our attention to the Battle of the Bulge, and more specifically the events surrounding the Belgian town of Bastogne. Paratrooper Donald Burgett, one of those members of the 101st Airborne Division who fought in Bastogne, called it seven roads to hell. Whilst another referred to Bastogne as the hole in the doughnut. This Belgian town found itself right at the epicentre of these monumental events witnessing scenes of ferocious fighting as this battle unfolded around it in some of the harshest conditions imaginable.
