The Battle of the Bulge, the last major German offensive of World War II, was launched just over 73 years ago. British Prime Minister Winston Churchill called it, “undoubtedly the greatest American battle of the war and will, I believe, be regarded as an ever-famous American victory.”
Our January speaker, Mr. Ernest Roberts, was a staff sergeant during World War II. A machine gunner, he fought and was wounded in the Battle of the Bulge. He will share his wartime combat experience with us at the January meeting.
Interestingly, the Varnum Armory Museum has a Browning .30 Cal machine gun in its collection, the same type of gun Mr. Roberts used in combat.
