A tribute to the foot soldier of World War II, this is the true story about a squad of the 101st Airborne Division, trapped by the Germans in the besieged city of Bastogne, Belgium during the Battle of the Bulge in December of 1944. They're low on fuel, rations and ammunition; the Germans are constantly encouraging their surrender; and a pervasive, thick fog prevents their relief by Allied air support. It's a tough, but thoroughly engaging tale.
