Historical Background:
In January 1945, Easy Company of the 101st airborne was poised to take the small village of Foy along a road that stretched from Bastogne to Noville to the North. Easy Company was in a part of the forest to the South of Foy, and when they stepped into the Bois Jacques forest to the North, they immediately lost contact with platoons and even on the squad level because of the dense snow and trees. The 26th SS Panzer grenadier Regiment of the 12th SS Division hit to the right of Easy Company with tanks, artillery, and infantry, inflicting heavy losses. As darkness was coming on, the men were ordered to dig in. This is their position when you take over in the morning. Command well and win, command poorly, and ... you know.
