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?

I knew someone from this battle. I didn't know he served in the Battle of the Bulge 'til after he passed away 2 months ago. He was 87 years old and a very nice man. His name is Norman Pudlack.
 
My father served in the Korean war. While leading his troop, he avoided an ambush and saved them but was shot himself. He was given the Purple Heart but gave it to his grandson awhile back.
