Re: Walked out of Battle of the Bulge
The Battle of the Bulge was the last great battle fought on the Western Front,in which the Allied Forces managed to stop a great "Last ditch " effort by the Germans.We lost many thousands of men(some estimates up to 50,000), which may be a bit exaggerated but the German forces were stoppedand forced to retreat, with Pattons 3rd Army among others hot on their tail.
The momentum of the battle reversed and our forces went forward in pursuit or stayed where they were until relieved. There was very little, if any, air lifting of troops as there were no facilities for such.
Several movies have been made about the battle (which lasted over a month) and "Battleground" was probably the most natable.Les
