“On Christmas Day 1944, during the ‘Battle of the Bulge,’ Germans surrounded Bastogne, a center of road crossings vital to Hitler’s success in his drive to the Meuse River. When they demanded its surrender, General McAuliffe replied contemptuously, ‘Nuts.’ During the battle the church was the center caring for the many wounded.”
