In December 1944, when Allied forces seemed to have decisively turned the tide in World War II, the German Army mounted one last major attack, which became one of the bloodiest battles of the war -- 80,000 American soldiers died, and German casualties were estimated at twice that figure. American Experience: The Battle of the Bulge offers a documentary look at this brutal event, recreating the story with newsreel footage and interviews with survivors of the battle. David McCullough narrates.
