  • Marching Once More: 60 Years After the Battle of the Bulge

    In what stands as one of the last, large gatherings of World War II veterans, MARCHING ONCE MORE follows more than 100 survivors of the Battle of the Bulge as they return to Belgium and Luxembourg and reflect on the brutal six-week battle that claimed 19,000 American lives. The one-hour documentary captures the veterans' 2004 journey, including their uncertainty as to whether anyone would remember or care about the events that occurred 60 years earlier. To their surprise, the people of Belgium and Luxembourg treated them like celebrities: a king presented medals, a royal family laid wreaths in honor of the fallen and crowds clamored for autographs and to perhaps, for the last time, thank their liberators.
