Battle of the Bulge

This quote comes from the 35th Division discussion list. I thought I’d share it since it was a bit striking:

“Someone once asked me what the Battle of the Bulge was like. I said ‘Imagine the coldest day you ever experienced, then imagine you’re in your backyard and someone gives you a shovel and tells you to dig a hole, that’s where you’re going to spend the night…you and your buddy…Then imagine your neighbor has a rifle and he’s looking for you, and he’s going to blow your head off….THAT’S what it was like!”
