All Soldiers that we're involved on every side honestly went through so much. They were all so brave.
The Siege Of Bastogne was an engagement in December 1944 between American and German forces at the Belgian town of Bastogne, as part of the larger Battle Of The Buldge. The goal of the German offensive was the harbour at Antwerp. In order to reach it before the Allies could regroup and bring their superior air power to bear, German mechanised forces had to seize the roadways through eastern Belgium. Because all seven main roads in the densely wooded Ardennas highlands converged on Bastogne (Bastnachin German), just a few miles away from the border with neighbouring Luxembourg, control of its crossroads was vital to the German attack. The siege was from 20 to 27 December, until the besieged American forces were relieved by elements of General George Patton's Third Army.
