There are problems with this scenario: it cannot be set-up using the standard terrain tiles of Memoir '44 and the selected extensions. There are too many terrains of one or more types. Please contact the author.
The 101st Airborne Division is surrounded in Bastogne. The Germans need the crossroads town to continue their advance in "Unternehmen Wacht am Rhein". Will the tanks of Patton's third army be on time to liberate the surrounded troops before the Germans capture the town?
The allied paratroopers of the 101st didn't have time to resupply their ammunition, medicine and food. They were also lacking winter clothing. Those units start with only 3 figures. Mark them with a badge.
All German infantry are SS special forces. The two rear German tanks are special forces. They consist of 4 figures each.
