MOST RECENT

The 101st Airborne Division held the Bois Jacques or Jacques Woods, up a slight rise outside Foy. Stephen Ambrose's book Band of Brothers describes how Easy Company of the 2nd Battalion, 506th Parachute Infantry led the assault to capture the town in January, 1945. The 506th, including Easy Company, initially commanded by First lieutenant Norman Dike, attacked Foy. They lost several men in the initial charge. During the January 1945 assault, which included Easy Company, Dike had ordered a platoon to go on a flanking mission around the rear of the town.
In one account of the attack, Dike ordered the company to take cover after coming under fire. With the unit unable to proceed, his subordinates informed him they were going to get killed because they were sitting ducks. At the same time, Captain Richard Winters, former commander of Easy Company and now the 2nd Battalion's Executive Officer, tried radioing him to tell him to move his men. Having no idea how to control the situation, Dike froze. As Carwood Lipton, at that time the company's first sergeant, later put it: "He fell apart."

Impressive day. We have visit a lot world war 2 monuments and battle places. I took this picture in the woods where the Easy company from the 101 airborne division stayed for almost the whole winter while they where under attack by German soldiers. The foxholes are still visible after 70 years. #ww2 #Belgium #easycompany #war #ardenne #bastoyne #woods #americansoldiers #flag #americanflag #BoisJacquesWoods
