Lifting the Siege of Bastogne

Lifting the Siege of Bastogne

(p.289) Chapter 12 Lifting the Siege of Bastogne
The Unknown Dead

Peter Schrijvers

University Press of Kentucky

This chapter examines the Allied forces' lifting of the Siege of Bastogne in Belgium during the Battle of the Bulge. This engagement started on January 3, 1945, and after barely five days, the final German push against Bastogne had fizzled out. On the same day, Adolf Hitler at last agreed to a limited withdrawal from the tip of the Bulge to a line anchored on a point some five miles west of Houffalize. One January 9, George S. Patton relaunched the offensive from around Bastogne with his III and VIII Corps.
