Photos from the Battle of the Bulge
During the winter of 1944-45, more than 500,000 troops were deployed in the Ardennes. An astonishing number — 76,000 — would be wounded or killed. The troops were young men — some of them barely out of high school.
Freezing cold, frostbite, death — these were everyday facts for the soldiers at the Bulge. Browse this gallery of photos from the Battle of the Bulge to see what it was like.
