On December 16, 1944, Adolf Hitler launched a surprise counteroffensive against Allied forces in the Ardennes Forest region of Belgium, northeastern France, and Luxembourg. Known as the Battle of the Bulge, Hitler committed more than 1,000 tanks and 200,000 troops to this last Nazi effort, hoping to recapture the port city of Antwerp. Veterans, their families, and officials from the U.S. military and Allied nations marked the battle’s 75th anniversary with a ceremony in Washington, D.C. Author Alex Kershaw gave the keynote address. The Friends of the National World War II Memorial hosted the event. close
