Example text

Lanny could guess that the Führer’s meteorologists had promised him what he wanted, and that the date of the blitz had been set by them. On the previous day, near the town of Malmédy to the north, a group of a hundred and twenty-five Americans had been surrounded by tanks and forced to surrender. It spread quickly, and American soldiers made note of the designation of those black-uniformed murderers. Soon afterward came an episode in Bastogne, showing again what kind of battle this was going to be.

Had exchanged a few sentences with members of the fleeing group but had not learned very much. The 9th Armored had been ordered to hold at all costs and they had done so; the noncombatants—the cooks, clerks, mechanics, and even members of the band—had caught up weapons and stood fast until their last cartridges had been fired. The Germans had taken everything they had, so they could not offer the Monuments officers so much as a can of bully beef. Men who are well fed and well clad can perhaps dig into snow and sleep without danger; but men whose bellies are empty, and who have been floundering through snowdrifts to the point of exhaustion, dare not lie down and lose consciousness.

It was good-by forever—at least so far as the son of Budd-Erling was concerned. Out into that dark forest, with only a dim light to guide the driver. A ride not soon to be forgotten, with shells exploding here and there, and the rattle of machine guns on both sides, and the thought every moment: Are we going to hit a mine? Shall we find the road blocked and have to get out and tramp in the snow again? It too was being defended with desperation; it too might be surrounded now, or in the next hour.
