Bastogne, memorial to the Battle of the Bulge.  More American died in this battle than in any other on foreign soil. 81,000 Americans with 250 tanks were confronted by 250,000 Germans with over 1000 tanks.  It was not going well for the Americans until Patton's Third Army arrived.  After days of fierce fighting the Germans were routed.  They suffered 100,000 casualties.  33,000 Americans also died.
