The French have done a magnificent job of paying tribute to a true American Hero. Not only is this a fine tribute to Audie Murphy, but it truly honors the memory of so many men and women who gave so much for us all to...More
Our tour guide was phenomenal in describing the details of the battles in the area during the winter of 1945. The Audie Murphy monument is well off the main road but is perfect to show the area of the fighting.

We put the address into our GPS and had no trouble finding the monument. The region today is so beautiful and peaceful with rolling hills, farms and vineyards. We stopped in front of the city hall to watch two storks tending their giant nest. We...More
I took a WW2 organised through Viking Cruises. The guide - a delightful and very knowledgeable lady (whose name I forget :-( ) took across the area, stopping at several sites of interest and ended the tour here. Her description of the famous action really...More
