The Battle of the Bulge was the last major German offensive campaign on the Western Front during WW2. It was launched through the forested Ardennes region of Belgium, France, and Luxembourg. The offensive was intended to split the Allied Forces and stop the Allied use of the port of Antwerp. Intercepted German communications indicating a substantial German offensive preparation were not acted upon by the Allies. This was perhaps because the initial belief was that this was just the anticipated localized counterattack resulting from the Allies' recent attack in the Wahlerscheid sector to the north, where the 2nd Division had knocked a sizeable dent in the Siegfried Line. On Dec 16th 1944, at 05.30, the Germans began the assault with a 90 minute artillery barrage using 1,600 artillery pieces across a 130 km front on the Allied troops (mainly the U.S VIII Corps) from Aachen to Bastogne. The initial attack involved 406,000 men, 1,214 tanks, tank destroyers, and assault guns, and 4,224 artillery pieces. It involved over 20 divisions of German Wehrmacht, Panzer, and SS armies. The Allies were taken by surprise at the size of the attack. To the north, the 14th Cavalry Group and 106th Infantry Division were encircled or pushed back. To the south, several units were able to conduct a fighting withdrawal, which held the German advance long enough for reinforcements to be brought in. Included in these reinforcements were the 101st Airborne Division who were resting in Mourmelon-le-Grande, some 115 miles away. ♠♠ #bandofbrothers #easycompany #506thpir #currahee #101stairbornedivision #ww2 #wwii #battleofthebulge #bastogne #ardennes #belgium #ww2history #screamingeagles #siegfriedline #VIIIcorps #antwerp #war #artillery #military
