Fatal Crossroads: 2012 Tour of the Malmedy Massacre at the Baugnez Museum

In June 2012 we will have a tour of the Malmedy Massacre at Baugnez, Belgium as a tie-in with my new book, Fatal Crossroads.  This tour will also be coordinated with the Baugnez 44 Museum and feature a detailed expedition along the historical route of the Kampfgruppe Peiper.  What mysteries of Malmedy are yet to be solved?  You'll be among the first to know!  There will be a cocktail reception at the museum after the event.
