Join American Compass for a great deal on ALAMO IN THE ARDENNES
The Alamo in the Ardennes is the story of three distinct groups of American soldiers who held up the Germans for five brutal days, costing them essential time. From December 16 through December 18, the overwhelmed 28th Infantry Division fought ferociously in a series of little Luxembourg towns. On December 19, soldiers of the 9th Armored Division basically sacrificed themselves at several small road junctions on the Luxembourg-Belgian border, buying a few precious hours. Then on December 19/20, soldiers from the 101st Airborne Division and Combat Command B of the 10th Armored Division successfully held off German attempts to capture Bastogne. The result was a siege that the Germans could never really win and the beginning of the end of their Ardennes offensive.
