University Press of Kentucky

This chapter examines the German forces' capture of the town of St. Vith in Belgium during the Battle of the Bulge. The German forces arrived at Wallerode on December 17, 1944, and on December 20 the newly committed Führer Begleit Brigade tried to get into St. Vith. By December 22, the American troops had withdrawn from their defenses in front of St. Vith to a more or less stable line behind it. This chapter describes the highlights of this engagement and the number of civilian casualties.
