Columbia, SC… South Carolina ETV’s national presentation of “The American Road to Victory: The Americans in the Bulge” will be screened at libraries across the state during the month of February. Each screening will feature producer/director Richard Lanni and local WWII veterans who will speak to the audience and answer their questions. These screenings have been made possible in part by the Humanities Council of South Carolina.
The Americans in the Bulge, one episode in “The American Road to Victory” trilogy, takes viewers from the Ardennes Forests to Malmedy, St. Vith, and Bastogne to witness the unimaginable conditions these soldiers faced, and the complexity of the Allied Forces’ efforts to defeat the Nazi regime. The program is hosted by Ellwood von Seibold, a World War II battle tour guide, who shows, from a soldier’s perspective, what fighting in this campaign was like for US forces.
