"Both the enemy and the weather could kill you, and the two of them was a pretty deadly combination"

War Tactic

On December 16, 1944, Hitler attempts to split allied forces. Along Belgium and Luxembourg through the Adrennas forest and Nazi Germany, German forces went up against the Americans and the British in a desperate attempt to put the war back in their favor. Germany had tried this tactic three times before and failed and failed again. Hitler had believed this time he would cut off British, american, and Canadian armies by punching a bulge in our line. This would be especially hard given Germany was depleted of many military supplies after D-Day. But on January 25, 1945 the allies came out on top.
