Battle of the Bulge  Dec 16 1944 - Jan 25 1945



Explanation:  Battle of the Bulge was the German's last offensive during WWII.  It lasted from December 16, 1944 until January 25, 1945.  At the end of the battle, forces were over 1 million men - 560,000 Germans, 640,000 Americans, at 58,000 British.  The allied forces had over 6,000 bombers against 2,400 German aircraft, 1000 of which were distroyed (German Aircraft). 

***Does anyone have any relatives that served in WWI or WWII?
