General Patton Route

The “Patton Route”.

A project developed by “La Mémoire Civile 1940 – 1945” in cooperation with the local communities and schools.

The route follows General George S. Patton’s Third US Army as it counterattacked the German Bulge. Starting from Fauvillers, it goes to Hotte, the bridge north of Burnon, Chaumont, Clochimont, Assenois, the bunker north of Assenois (breakthrough), the Gen. Patton Memorial in Bastogne and ends at the Sherman tank in Bastogne.
