Bastogne is the Battle of the Bulge, Hitler’s last offensive of the war, which Hitler designed and planned to have a perfect outcome for him. He planned to surround our troops in the Ardennes forest, to cut them off from supplies, and trap them in the cold and snow during the coldest part of the year. The men went into Bastogne knowing they were short of supplies, food, and ammo. They lacked winters clothing, and the medic, Eugene Roe, didn’t even have enough medical supplies, and has a hard time getting them. But the men know that they are paratroopers- they were trained to be surrounded, and that is how they fight best.
