This is my great uncle, Tech 5 Melvin Eudy and a cigarette case he brought back from the European Theater in WW2.  His first engagement with the enemy was during the battle of the bulge on christmas eve, his birthday.  Members of his regiment were replacements for casualties from the opening blows of the battle. Whats interesting about the case is that this case displays two distinct added decorations.  A mothers cross and a 25th anniversary WW1 pin.  I theorize that the german soldier who owned this had his parents patriotic decorations fastened to them for remembrance.  The human act of that has always stuck with me. #ww2 #battleofthebulge #ardennes #69thdivision #273infantryregiment #recon #greatestgeneration

The Battle of the Bulge 1944 ( Bastogne)

The Allies knew there was a build-up of German troops and equipment around the Ardennes but never believed Hitler was capable of such a bold initiative. Only the day before the attack, the British commander, Bernard Montgomery, told Dwight D Eisenhower, the Allies’ Supreme Commander, that the Germans would be incapable of staging ‘major offensive operations’. Captured Germans spilled the plans but their information was ignored. Thus, the attack came as a complete surprise.
Thick snow and heavy fog prevented the Americans from employing their airpower and the German advance of 250,000 men forced a dent in the American line (hence battle of the ‘Bulge’). Germans, dressed in American uniforms and driving captured US jeeps, caused confusion and within five days the Germans had surrounded almost 20,000 Americans at the crossroads of Bastogne. Their situation was desperate but when the German commander gave his American equivalent, Major-General Anthony McAuliffe, the chance to surrender, McAuliffe answered with just the one word – ‘Nuts’.
US soldiers near the town of St Vith were not so lucky and 8,000 of them surrendered – the largest surrender of US troops since the American Civil War 80 years before. Elsewhere, the Germans taunted the Americans, using loudspeakers to ask, ‘How would you like to die for Christmas?’ General George Patton appealed for divine intervention – ‘Sir, this is Patton talking’, he said, addressing God in a small Luxembourg church, ‘You have just got to make up Your mind whose side You’re on.’ On Patton’s urging, God must have made up His mind for near Christmas the fog lifted, and the Americans were able to launch their planes. Patton, considering the weather, said, ‘It’s a cold, clear Christmas – lovely weather for killing Germans’. While Patton moved reinforcements into Bastogne and relieved its desperate defenders, Montgomery prevented the Germans from crossing the River Meuse.
The Americans then counterattacked; the Germans ran out of fuel and the bulge was burst...

It was like every town was waiting for me to show up today. A random bunch of Belgium war re-enactors, a lineup of classic cars, and ever one small, lost, tired hunting dog that came right up to my car and looked up as if to say “did we get it? Can we go home now?” #belgium #ardennes #wallonia #chateaux #porsche  Btw the dog got home quite safe and sound, the car just behind me picked him up.

M41 2nd Armoured Divison Field Jacket. There's something about the M41 Jacket. Certainly conjures up all of those images of the GI on the frontline.

The 101st Airborne's Brig. General Anthony Clement "Nuts" McAuliffe (center), Bastogne, Belgium.
In mid-December 1944, Allied forces were surprised by a massive German offensive through the Ardennes Forrest that created a “bulge” in the Allied lines. At Bastogne, the 101st was besieged by a far-larger force of Germans under the command of General Heinrich Freiherr von Lüttwitz and the Americans had been holding the Belgian town at all costs. On December 22, the American troops were sent an ultimatum from the German forces outside of the town, demanding the honorable surrender of the town within two hours.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The Division Operations Officer, Lt. Col. Harry Kinnard recalled that McAulliffe initially asked, "They want to surrender?" Moore told him, "No sir, they want us to surrender." McAulliffe arose and erupted in anger, which shocked those looking on. He took the paper, looked at it, said "Us surrender, aw nuts!" and dropped it on the floor. The reply was typed up, centered on a full sheet of paper. It read: "December 22, 1944
To the German Commander,
N U T S !
The American Commander"
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The German delegation appeared confused and asked Colonel Joseph Harper what the message meant. Harper said, “In plain English? Go to hell.” The Battle of the Bulge continued for several more weeks, but by the end of January 1945, the Allies had retaken all the territory lost to the Germans and were headed toward Berlin.
