The Colonel's item is an incident in what may have been on of the most significant battles of the Belgium Bugle. With reference to the attached map, here is the rest of the story. The decisive role of the German Ardennes offensive was to be executed by the 1st S.
Panzer Division. This division was known as Hitler's own, having its origins to Hitler's first bodyguard.
More specifically, the offensive was to be spearheaded by the beefed-up men Kampfgruppe commanded by S. Joachim Peiper, an experienced hero of the Russian Front. A clause in the Kampfgruppe's order expressly stated that prisoners of war were to be shot, where the conditions of combat should so require it.
This decree was first demonstrated at Baugnez, site of the Malmedy Massacre. Shortly after breakthrough, the st Engineer Combat Group was ordered to cover the area south of the Ambleve River, to provide a screening force for the 1st Army Headquarter at Spa. Moments before their arrival, the st Engineers had blown three bridges - one over the Ambleve at Trois-Ponts and two on the Salm River south of Trois-Ponts.
Peiper was now forced to turn north to La Gleize, rather than to follow his planned crossing of the Ambleve for the most direct route to his objective. To further complicate matters, the river on his left and the high wooded hills on the right limited his route to the valley road to La Gleize.

The 82nd 's front on the south side of the Ambleve extended east to the Salm River.
Here they witnessed atrocities committed upon Belgium men, women and children by Peiper's S. Panzer Regiment in their effort to breakthrough to Peiper's advanced units. Captain "Doc" Robert's medics, guarded by Lt. The high hills in the area blocked radio communications with Lovelady's CP at Roanne. Some elements of the 2nd S.
