Christmas seventy-five years ago 500,000 Allied soldiers fought a 40-day battle to prevent Hitler from reaching fuel supplies at Antwerp, Belgium. The Allies were stretched out to defend a long line. It was bitterly cold and the Allied commanders had not thought that Hitler would attack under such conditions. When you look at a map you can see a bulge in the line where Hitler was moving forward, hence the name Battle of the Bulge. But our guys held. Wayne Field was one of those young soldiers who fought in this epic battle.
