1) "When the Allies recover their composure after the Nazi surprise break through on the Western front, they quickly go into action. Supplies are rushed to the front as civilian evacuees stream to the rear. Mines are laid, road blocks set up, the woods are combed for Nazi paratroopers, and Yank artillery roars into action. Clear weather enables fleets of Allied bombers to disrupt Nazi communication lines with hundreds of tons of bombs. Fleets of transport planes parachute badly needed supplies to the encircled heroes who are holding Bastogne. Gen Patton's armor fights its way northward into Bastogne, the demolished city. Wrecked and burning Yankee equipment is seen scattered all through the 'bulge area.' Now Allied strategy is operating to make the Nazis pay dearly for the gains secured through their surprise counter-attack." scenes of Allies place mines and roadblocks to stop Rundstedt's drive, check credentials of jeeps, artillery and tanks fire, weather in first days grounded Allied planes, but weather broke and bombers dropped thousands of tons; Bastogne relieved from the south, 1500 tons supplies parachuted to defenders, ruins of Bastogne, prisoners taken.
