Full Day Battle of the Bulge Tour
We visit the sites where the Battle of the Bulge was fought in December 1944 and January 1945. The German Counteroffensive on the Western Front delayed Western Allied offensive plans by five to six weeks, but exhausted German offensive resources. American forces incurred their highest casualties of any operation during the Second World War, and also German personnel sustained heavy losses.
