Life has released some supposedly never before seen images taken during the Ardennes offensive. I know I've seen one of them before (the 15 year old POW) but none of the rest are familiar. You can see them here http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2075565/Vivid-new-Battle-Bulge-photos-offer-seen-look-war-weary-soldiers-braving-frigid-weather-fight-Nazi-Germanys-major-offensive-World-War-II.html

It looks cold in those pictures!

It was cold. Maybe no worse than it normally got in Russia, but still plenty miserable. They should have postponed the battle pending better weather. People should spend Christmas indoors, gathered around the fireplace with a glass of something nice. Not trying to dig a foxhole in the frozen ground in -20°F conditions.
