Brings to light the contributions of the 291st Combat Engineer Battalion to the Allied Forces during the Battle of the Bulge. In December of 1944, the seemingly defeated Germans secretly mustered 600,000 battle-hardened troops into an all-out offensive to capture Antwerp, the heart of the Allied supply chain. The program interviews U.S. Army troops who fought in the battle and investigates the battalion's cunning efforts in defeating Nazi forces near the end of World War II.
