The Battle of the Bulge

February 27,  5:00 pm 
Fromm Hall 115, Berman Room 
Dr. Andrew G. Jameson was a nineteen year old Infantry Sergeant in the Battle of the Bulge, and was awarded the Purple Heart with Cluster, a Bronze Star with Cluster and a Combat Infantry Badge for his services. He holds a Ph.D. in History from Harvard University, a doctorate in History from the Sorbonne, of the Université de Paris.  A former Professor of History at Bosphorus University in Istanbul, Dr. Jameson was recently appointed Professor of Bibliography at USC,  and he served as Administrator of the Military Affairs Program at UC Berkeley for ROTC units in all four military branches, as well as Military History instructor.  He is also current Historian and Librarian Emeritus of the Bohemian Club of San Francisco.

The Battle of the Bulge was the largest and bloodiest American land battle of WWII. It was the biggest battle ever fought by the US Army and the costliest one in American history. Dr. Jameson will discuss the reasons for the December ’44-January ‘45 German offensive against the American front on the German-Belgian border and why it failed, the American failure to anticipate the offensive, the epic defense of Bastogne and the execution of American POWs at Malmedy.  Images of German and American battle positions will be presented. His account of the battle is from his experience as a participating soldier and on his research as a military historian.
