    From Dec 20 to Dec 26, 1944, during the #BattleoftheBulge, the 101st Airborne Division formed an all-round perimeter of Bastogne.
    As a result of the powerful American defense to the north and east, XLVII Panzer Corps commander decided to encircle Bastogne and strike from the south and southwest.
    German panzer reconnaissance units had initial success, with all seven highways leading to Bastogne were cut by German forces by noon of 21 December. By nightfall the conglomeration of airborne and armored infantry forces were recognized by both sides as being surrounded.
    Outnumbered approximately 5-1, American Soldiers were lacking in cold-weather gear, ammunition, food, medical supplies, and senior leadership.
