The recon material sat for decades, its unique view of important encounters unseen. Shot from aircraft high above the conflicts, it captures the intense action as Allied forces battled their enemies. Enriched with cutting-edge CGI graphics which create detailed contour maps of the battleground, THE LOST EVIDENCE sheds new light on some of WWII's most important engagements.
In the grim winter of 1944 one of the most famous campaigns in military history unfolded in the forests of Belgium. Hitler's last-ditch, all-or-nothing Ardennes Offensive was an epic confrontation that pushed an 85-mile bulge into the Allied front. As blood spilled on both sides, nothing less than the outcome of WWII and the history of the planet hung in the balance.
In this much-anticipated presentation, LOST EVIDENCE turns its omniscient eye to the 101st Airborne's blood-and-guts defense of Bastogne, a critical link in the strained front. By witnessing the battleground through incomparable computer animation combined with air recon taken before, during and after the conflict, you will gain a rare understanding of this decisive moment in the BATTLE OF THE BULGE.
