The Unknown Dead

University Press of Kentucky

This chapter examines the German offensive at the so-called Houffalize corridor in Belgium during the Battle of the Bulge. The German 116th Panzer and 560th Volksgrenadier Divisions were able to penetrate easily the undefended villages between larger communities of Gouvy and Houffalize. This gap was left open because the American forces concentrated on the areas of St. Vith and Bastogne. This chapter discusses the highlights of this engagement and describes the conditions of the local residents and the number of civilian casualties.
