Description

It was in Vielsalm on 17 December that Major-General Robert Hasbrouck, commanding the 7th Armored Division, established his headquarters from which he directed the units that were to fight so bravely in the Vielsalm - Sankt Vith - Gouvy sector. Although outnumbered, they inflicted a considerable delay on the advance of the troops of Sepp Dietrich's 6th Panzer Army. But following Field-Marshal Montgomery's order to withdraw, General Hasbrouck left his Vielsalm headquarters on 23 December. (text source by Guy Blockmans/OPT)
