By September 1944 and the Allies have stormed across France. Patton’s Third Army was poised to strike into Germany itself, with the 4th Armored Division in the lead. Hitler’s new Panzer Brigades were diverted to meet the Americans in the Lorraine. 

By early December 1944, it seemed unlikely that the Germans would attack. On 16 December that illusion was shattered when the might of the German Sixth Panzer Army smashed into the thinly-held US lines in the Ardennes forests. In the central sector, the Germans approached the town of Bastogne on 19 December, defended by the veteran 101st Airborne Division. What followed was an epic seven-day struggle. On 26 December the siege was broken by the arrival of the 4th Armored Division.

After the Ardennes, the US Army turned its attention to crossing the Rhine into the German heartland. Leading the march of the US First Army is the 9th Armored Division and in early March 1945, they cross Remagen’s Ludendorff Bridge across the Rhine.
