Ardennes

In the largest land battle ever fought by the United States Army six hundred thousand valiant Americans rallied to defeat three powerful German armies in the snows of the Ardennes Forest of Belgium and Luxembourg. Almost 20 thousand soldiers made the supreme sacrifice to win the victory in the Battle of the Bulge and to secure freedom for the heroic peoples of Belgium and Luxembourg and hasten the end of World War II in Europe.

This monument is dedicated to the memory of the courageous men and women who turned apparent defeat into a great American victory.
