Action and Adventure – Horror of Hurtgen
There was more than one horror in the Hurtgen Forest in 1944. American soldiers, ill‑prepared for grim German weather, shivered the whole night through. But the savage winter, cold, and feverish rain, weren’t the only things they had to contend with in those dark and mysterious woods. The men felt hunted by something worse than veteran German soldiers — stalked by something horrifying in the Hurtgen Forest.
Andrew Knighton’s story of prejudice in World War Two still resonates, with Vicente Alcazar’s shadowy interiors giving credence to the mirky woods and sinister threat prevailing.
