Liberation, Part 2 - Siege of Bastogne | South Carolinians in WW II


Veterans share their recollections of the Battle of the Bulge and the siege of Bastogne. It was the cold winter in 50 years, and they were not dressed for the cold. The sky was blackened with shells coming in. The Germans had broken through, and the Third Army was to hit from the south and the 82nd from the north. The roads were full of retreating American soldiers, running and throwing their weapons away, completely disoriented. Thirty-eight German divisions surrounded them. They had to be stopped.
