On January 3rd, 1945, VII Corps launched its offensive to reduce the Bulge salient. The drive, with the 2nd Armored Division as a key element, headed towards Houffalize. Over a foot of snow covered the ground and the armored columns were forced to follow passable roads. Two houses were observed to their front when suddenly a panzerfaust struck the lead tank …
Belgium … January 1945 … The Battle of the Bulge. Deep snow (E3.73) covers the fields and woods surrounding Coroie, Belgium, and Cpt. Robert E. Lee, D Company’s commanding officer, moved across the fields flanked by two platoons of infantry in the woods to his right. German machine gun fire soon ripped across the open ground into the infantry who took cover in the trees. As Lee moved his M4 Shermans up the plowed road, a Panzerfaust erupted from one of the nearby houses and slammed into the side of one of the tanks, absorbed by the hastily secured sandbags that hung from its side.
