The bridge of La-Roche-en-Ardenne.
In 1944 La-Roche-en-Ardenne was liberated by the Americans. During their retreat, he Germans blew up the bridges. The Americans however, did rebuild one of the bridges.
When the Battle of the Bulge started the Germans raced to La-Roche-en-Ardenne but did not yet cross. They found the rebuilt bridge not save. After some fighting elsewhere they changed their minds and decided to use the bridge.
The Americans used shells and bombs on the town to slow the assault. The town was liberated by forces of the UK.
In honor of all the fighting that took place in this city the town has opened a museum to honor the soldiers.
