December Footnote 3: "Clervaux"

"Almost squarely in the middle and six miles to the rear . . ., several hundred men of the veteran 28th Division were enjoying themselves that night in the Clervaux Rest Center.  This breathtakingly beautiful Luxembourg town, long a tourist's delight with its narrow winding cobblestone streets, its towering monastery and baroque houses, also boasted the romantic ruins of a medieval castle once owned by the ancestors of Franklin D. Roosevelt."  Toland, The Battle of the Bulge, 19-20.
