This Camera Of A Soldier That Died In A 1944 Battle Was Just Found. Wait Til You See What Was On It.
10 July, 2013

Captain Mark D. Anderson of the United States Navy and historian Jean Muller were searching for artifacts from The Battle of the Bulge in the mountainsides of Luxembourg when their metal detector alerted them to something just under their feet. Below Anderson and Muller was a foxhole that was dug during the crucial World War II battle and in it they found the belongings of an American soldier, Technician Fifth Grade Louis J. Archambeau. Among the things that Archambeau, who died in the battle, left behind was a camera with an undeveloped roll of film in it. Anderson and Muller developed the film and, after spending 70 years in a foxhole, a dead soldier’s photographs were finally brought to life. This is T/5 Louis J. Archambeau’s World War II experience, told by his very own photos.

My late uncle was there too..no one in the family was allowed to ask about his experiences there..so all of his dark secrets died with him...
