In the peaceful Dutch village of Margraten, a stone's throw from what once was Nazi Germany, ten thousand young American men are forever resting side by side amid rich pastures and lush orchards. They fought and died in the most epic battles of World War II in Europe: Operation Market Garden, the Siegfried Line campaign, the Hurtgen Forest, the Battle of the Bulge, the Rhine and Roer River crossings, and the air offensive over Germany. In 1945 the liberated villagers vowed never to forget the sacrifices of the Margraten boys. This is the moving story of how, in a unique way, these grateful villagers have kept their word to the GIs and their families in America by caring for the graves of the soldiers up until the present day.
