Ardennes

From ARRSEpedia
Jump to: navigation, search


A set of hills on the Dutch / Belgian / French / German border, much fought over and through since time immemorial.

In the past, the German army has been perfectly willing to run bus trips for bored kraut squaddies through the Ardennes. Sometimes the krauts will dress up in other army uniforms to amuse and confuse any other army in the area.

One of the more famous battles was during WW2, the so-called Battle of the Bulge.
