Bastogne will live forever in the annals of American military history. From the resounding 'Nuts', in response to the German demand for surrender, to the breaking of the siege by Patton's Third Army
face=Calibri>- brilliantly disengaged from its positions on the Saar, wheeled 90 degrees and marched northwards faster than any thought possible
face=Calibri>- the defense of Bastogne and victory in the Ardennes was one of the greatest feats of American arms in the European Theatre.

This title in the Past & Present series looks at the encirclement, siege, and relief with then and now photographs; specially commissioned aerial photos, and a wealth of detail.
