        Battle of Hürtgen Forest | Ken Burns: The War

        View images taken during the Battle for the Hürtgen Forest during World War II. The U.S. Army would suffer one of its worst defeats of World War II at the Battle for the Hürtgen Forest in Germany between September and December of 1944. Allied forces had weakened the German Army and believed they could win the war by year’s end. But fighting on the German’s home territory in a dense forest during winter was a formidable and ultimately lost challenge and the campaign came to a halt.
