 The Mons Pocket: the end of more than four years of occupation

In September 1944, the city of Mons was the first Belgian city to be liberated by the Allies. American troops took 30,000 German soldiers prisoner, during what the BBC called the “Battle of the Mons Pocket”. On this tour you will discover the Mons Memorial Museum and the historic centre of the city of Mons.
