the company that I built from my lifelong passion for the stories of World War II and the Battle of the Bulge.
For the past thirty years, this passion has carried me all over the globe, teaching American and war history at universities in the United States, Belgium, Switzerland, and as far away as Australia.
It is the same passion that inspired me also to write six internationally acclaimed books on World War II with prestigious publishers like Yale and Cambridge. The Wall Street Journal called my book on Bastogne “admirable” and “a fast-paced narrative.” Another of my Bulge books was made a selection of the History Book Club in the United States. The Atlantic labelled my book on the American combat soldier in Europe “a masterpiece.”
The success of my books set in motion a train of events. Before I knew it, I was doing interviews for American PBS radio, giving talks from London to Tennessee, providing consultancy for Dutch documentary makers, and appearing on Belgian television alongside American veterans revisiting the Bulge.
And with all that came more and more requests from readers, veterans’ relatives, World War II enthusiasts, and business and educational leaders for an opportunity to visit Europe’s battlefields with me as a personal guide.
As a result, some time ago I decided that I was ready again to embrace a fresh challenge and embark on a new adventure.
I said goodbye to Australia, returned to my Belgian roots and the battlefields that I have come to know so well, and created Battlefox, a company that now offers some of the best and most exciting private battlefield tours in Europe.
So here we are. Have a look around, take in the atmosphere of 1944-45, and see for yourself what kinds of exciting and inspiring tours Battlefox has on offer. And if there is anything that I can help you with, do not hesitate to get in touch for more information.
All of my tours can be provided in English or in Dutch. So feel free to contact me in either of these two languages.
