In episode 8 'The Last Patrol' of the mini series Band of Brothers, we saw that the 101st Airborne Division was transferred from the Ardennes to Haguenau in the Alsace to strengthen the 7th US Army. What we read in the book and didnít see in the series was that they first had been at Drulingen and were held in reserve for a while. The 506th arrived in Drulingen on January 20.
It was unclear for us where exactly they had been so we walked through the center and made some pictures of a couple of houses and the church.
