The 101st Airborne Division’s stubborn resistance by overwhelmed infantry and armored units in Belgium and Luxemburg is a less recognized event in military history. However, without their willingness to sacrifice all while holding their ground, the defense of Bastogne would have never happened. Battlefield expert Robert Mueller will review these individual contributions to defeat Hitler’s 1944 winter offense.
