Allies Win the Battle of the Bulge
On January 25, 1945, the Battle of the Bulge came to an end.
On July 25, 1944, Allied troops broke through German lines at Saint-Lo, France, and a month later, Paris was liberated after four long years of Nazi occupation. Driving forward, General George S. Patton pushed eastward toward the Rhine River, while British commander Bernard Montgomery swept into Belgium, capturing Antwerp on September 4th. By the late fall, U.S. and British forces had managed to drive the Germans back to their own borders.
