Captain Mark D. Anderson, United States Navy and Jean Muller, a historian were alerted to something below their feet while searching for artifacts in the Luxembourg mountainsides from the battle of the bulge. They found a foxhole dug during the World War II battle and inside were the belongings of Technician Fifth Grade Louis J. Archambeau, an American soldier. Among Archambeau belonging’s was a camera that had an undeveloped film. Muller and Anderson developed the film, 70 years later, and brought back to life photographs that tell the story of a dead soldier.

The Battle of the Bulge resulted in more American casualties than any other battle in World War II. Spanning December 16, 1944 to January 25, 1945, roughly 19,000 American soldiers lost their lives. However, the battle was an even bigger blow to the Germans, who lost much of their war resources.
