        Battle of the Bulge and the Malmedy Massacre | Ken Burns: The War

        View images taken from the Battle of the Bulge the Malmedy Massacre. Weakened by Allied forces, the German army launched a final assault in World War II on the Western Front in December 1944, in the dense Ardennes forest and mountain range that stretches through Belgium, France, and Luxembourg. The Battle of the Bulge would be a bloody, costly win for American soldiers, who battled bitter cold, snow, dwindling supplies, and poor communications. In Malmedy, Belgium, German soldiers captured and murdered American prisoners. General George S. Patton’s Third Army would be key to ensuring the Allied victory.
