On December 16, 24 enemy divisions, 10 of which were armored, launched a massive counterattack in the Ardennes sector, resulting in what became known as the Battle of the Bulge. After coming back from the Aachen area, the Big Red One held the critical shoulder of the “Bulge” at Bullingen, destroying loads of German tanks in the process. In the course of December and January they pushed the Germans back to their original starting position. On January 15, 1945, the First Infantry Division attacked and penetrated the Siegfried line for the second time.
