    Breathtaking new photographs, including several vivid full-color images, offer a never-before-seen look at the war-weary soldiers in the Battle of the Bulge who fought through the frozen Ardennes Forest in a mountainous region of Belgium in the dead of winter.

    They show soldiers on both sides battling the frigid weather as they fought each other during Nazi Germany's last-ditch effort to drive back Allied forces between December 1944 and January 1945.

    The pictures were released by Life Magazine on the 67th anniversary of the start of the grueling battle.

    Members of Second Cav and one of our former Squadron Commanders just went over to Belgium for Nuts Day and re-enacted some parts of the battle.

    Years ago I used to go around Harrisburg PA close to FT Indiantown Gap. They had a mock Battle of the Bulge their and some of the reinactors had some fantatstic uniforms.

    The caption on that pic is "Tough going: Soldiers of US 1st Army hacking at frozen ground to dig foxholes near their machine gun position".

    The guy has to hack through the frozen earth so he can have cover and maybe a nap inside that frozen earth. How these guys managed to not just shoot themselves is a miracle. God Bless Them.
