My father was a second lieutenant in the combat engineers in that battle.
Mostly it was 101st airborne defending the town but there were other units as well,a glider unit I think.
The German commander sent a communique to the American commander,Brigadier General McAuliffe telling him he was surrounded by tanks and heavy artillery,and to give up in two hours or heavy bombardment would annihilate the American troops.His response," NUTS !"
They held off the assault for three very hairy days,until Patton's 4th army arrived and reinforced them (saved them is what my old man said.)
Patton gave my father (and allot of other survivors) a battlefield promotion.McAuliffe got cited for the Distinguished Service Cross.
Nice job with the visual.
