After the initial confusion following the German assault into the Ardennes, allied forces quickly consolidated, setting up strong defensive positions around important crossroads and villages. One of these strongpoints was the Belgian town of St. Vith, where the 7th US Armored and 106th US Infantry divisions hold their ground against the might of the German Panzers. When they were finally forced to give up their positions, they had delayed the Germans for many crucial days and left St. Vith as a pile of rubble.
