Historical Background:
In late December 1944, while the Germans still hoped to capture Bastogne, US troops recovered the initiative to relieve this city which was partly besieged. The 11th US Armored Division, just arrived in in the western front and totally "green", was in the forefront of the attack by the General Patton' 3rd Army, on the south west of Bastogne. The village of Chenoble and the "Bois des Valets" were the theater of fierce battles between Sherman tanks of the Task Force Pat and Jagdpanzer IV/70 of the Führer Begleit Brigade. US troops lost a lot of tanks and succeeded to clear the area only with the support of the artillery and fighter-bombers of the US Air Force.
