One of America’s greatest WWII generals is interred in the Luxembourg American Cemetery.
He commanded the Third Army during its sweep across France, its push north to liberate besieged Bastogne in the Battle of the Bulge – when it created this cemetery – and the advance through southern Germany, and into Austria and Czechoslovakia. He broke his neck in a car accident in Germany in December 1945, died 12 days later in a Heidelberg hospital and was buried here on Christmas Eve of that year.
