Bois Jacques Battlefield

During the Battle of Bastogne, the Bois Jacques was the scene of terrible fighting between the American and German armies. Today, the site has become a place of pilgrimage where you can still see the remains of the holes dug by the soldiers for protection: the famous "foxholes".

Thanks to an augmented reality mobile application, visitors can immerse themselves in the lives of American soldiers on this battlefield. Through a series of six immersive 360° geolocated videos, visitors can share in the daily lives of the G.I.s holed up in the rifle pits.

Each audiovisual work recounts a scene from the daily life of soldiers from one of the sections of the famous Easy Company, each spot being linked to a specific day and event, with information provided by the French Youtuber "Nota Béné".

The reconstructions presented via the mobile application are available in four languages (EN, FR, DE, NL).
