Video—Men and Guns of the Battle of the Bulge, Part 4

The Americans from the 9th and 10th Armored Divisions and the 101st Airborne were surrounded by the Germans during the Battle of the Bulge, and their fighting spirit and stout defense of that vital town—called “Seven Roads to Hell” by NRA Life member and paratrooper Don Burgettallowed other American troops to get into the fight. Eventually the Bulge was closed off by troops moving from the North and South who met at Houffalize Belgium. Two men, not at the battle, helped make that victory possible—John C. Garand and John Moses Browning. In this segment from American Rifleman Television, we cover the M1 Garand, the Browning Automatic Rifle, the Browning Model 1917A1, Model 1919A4 and M1919A6 machine guns. Also, we end this series with interviews with American soldiers who, as young men, fought to stop and throw back the Nazi onslaught.
