The village of Sadzot during the Battle of the Bulge


On the night of 27 to 28 December, using forest trails, a unit of 2. SS Panzer managed to break through the lines of defence of the 75th Infantry Division, entered the village and surprised the Americans. Paratroopers of the 82nd Airborne Division, supported by tanks of the 3rdArmored Division, were sent as reinforcements. After savage and bloody fighting, the Germans withdrew leaving behind many dead. The village, with its houses destroyed, was once again occupied by the Americans.
