Following his father's tragic death, American poet and historian Gregory Orfalea journeyed to France to attend the first reunion of his father's World War II infantry battalion, the ill-fated 551st. What he found was a compelling and unsolved mystery: why was the 551st sent to its destruction in a futile assault on Rochelinval during the Battle of the Bulge, and why has this heroic unit's memory been all but erased from military history?
