Product Description

The Battle of The Bulge.


At 5:35am on December 16th 1944, the predawn hush of the Ardennes forest was shattered by 620 German artillery pieces firing into Allied positions. An area that had long been considered “quiet” by the Allies and used as a place for new units to enter the line and veteran units to rest and rearm was now awash in the tide of a German offensive aimed at splitting American and British forces.

With an ambitious plan to surround and destroy several US divisions, retake the critical supply port of Antwerp, and force the Allies to sue for peace, the Germans stormed forward to battle and their first major objective: crossing the Meuse River.

By the end, the Ardennes Offensive, commonly called “The Battle of The Bulge” in popular accounts, would result in 89,000 killed, wounded, and missing for the Allies, while Germany would lose not only 84,000 killed, wounded, and missing, but the war as well.
