Lunch and Learn "Loss and Redemption at St. Vith: The 7th Armored Division in the Battle of the Bulge"

Thursday, February 27, 2020 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm



"Loss and Redemption at St Vith" closes a gap in the record of the Battle of the Bulge by recounting the exploits of the 7th Armored Division in a way that no other study has. Most accounts of the Battle of the Bulge give short-shrift to the interval during which the German forward progress stopped and the American counterattack began. This narrative centers on the 7th Armored Division for the entire length of the campaign, reconsidering the story of the whole battle through the lens of a single division and accounting for the reconstitution of the Division while in combat. This program is presented by Gregory Fontenot, Lansing, Kansas, a retired Colonel of the U.S. Army. He is currently a consultant on threat emulation for Army experimentation, a military history author, and a working historian. The Lunch & Learn series is sponsored by the Union Pacific Foundation and the Eisenhower Foundation. A light lunch will be provided on a first come, first served basis. RSVP not required.
