Battle of the Bulge: Bastogne WWII Then & Now – 13 EPIC Photographs

The Battle of the Bulge is a term for history buffs that is inseparable with the German Counter Offensive against the US frontlines in Belgium and Luxembourg that started on Decemeber 16, 1944. The offensive was intended to stop the Allied use of the Belgian port of Antwerp and to split the Allied lines, allowing the Germans to encircle and destroy four Allied armies and force the Western Allies to negotiate a peace treaty in the Axis powers’ favor. The Battle of the Bulge was the largest battle ever fought by the US Army in World War II.

In this episode of WWII Then & Now we travel around the city of Bastogne to take several Then & Now comparison photographs.
