Historical Background:
On December 30th, German High Command's plan to capture Bastogne called for a push from the west simultaneously with another from the east....

Heavy casualties on both sides brought the bitter fighting in this sector to a close. The German western pincer had failed.

This is a copy of the unclassified official scenario by RBorg posted here to play Online.
I'm using the white board to distinguish it from Bastogne Corridor East.
