ICC PROVIDES REPLAY OF EXCLUSIVE EVENT HONORING NEVADA’S VETERANS, FEATURING RE-KNOWN WORLD WAR II HISTORIAN, MARTIN KING

November 18, 2020

The video replay is now available, here, for the Investment Counsel Company event honoring Nevada’s World War II Veterans, featuring Martin King, author of “The Battle of the Bulge-Hitler’s Final Gamble in Western Europe.” Mr. King is one of World War II’s greatest historians and seven-time Emmy award winner.

King traveled to Las Vegas at the invitation of ICC’s Founder and CEO, Randy Garcia, to share his stories as ICC’s keynote speaker for an event to honor Nevada’s surviving World War II veterans.

King began to focus on the Battle of Bulge 30 years ago when he talked to a veteran from Oklahoma who showed him around the Ardennes, which is the region where Hitler launched his last offensive against Allied troops.

Since then, he has made it his mission to talk to servicemen and women about their time there.

While collecting their stories, King also made it a mission to tell as many people as possible about the American victory in Belgium in the bitterly cold winter of 1945.

King said the Battle of the Bulge, otherwise known as the Ardennes Offensive, was as multi-faceted as an “Antwerp diamond.” The front stretched 90 miles and covered three distinct areas with a variety of terrain.

In the end, King said it was the Americans’ ability to assume command when needed that won out.

“What transpired was the capacity of the American solider – the GI – to take control of the situation and operate autonomously down to the squad level. Where the Germans couldn’t operate beneath regimental level without written orders,” he said.

ICC’s CEO, Randy Garcia, organized the event in Las Vegas after visiting Normandy for the 75th anniversary of the Allied landing. While there, he met King and was inspired to ask him to travel to Las Vegas to honor our state’s WW II veterans.
