Aerial view of a transport column moving through the snow towards a battery of self-propelled guns in the Ardennes, 1945.

Photograph, World War Two, 1945.

In December 1944 the Germans mounted a surprise attack in the Ardennes. They planned to cross the River Meuse, then sweep north to retake Brussels and the port of Antwerp, thus splitting the Allies. Their armoured columns' 50 mile advance created the salient that gave the engagement its nickname, 'the Battle of the Bulge'. Despite this the American forces resisted the onslaught and managed to bring it to a halt within days.
