Battle of the Bulge

Road to Berlin: European Theater Galleries
Battle of the Bulge gallery, Road to Berlin

This immersive gallery sets the scene for the six-week Battle of the Bulge—the US Army’s largest battle of World War II. Hitler launched a surprise winter counter-attack through the Ardennes forest to drive the Allies back. Grappling with bitterly cold weather, more than 30 divisions and 600,000 men fought desperately to halt the Germans. Oral history stations, artifacts, and content panels guide visitors from the surprise German attack to the siege, to the ultimate hard-won Allied victory.
