Battle of St. Vith

The Battle of St. Vith was an extremely important prelude to the famous Battle of the Bulge. The battle was fought between 16 and 22 December just before Christmas when all the troops were feeling the most homesick. The struggle in St. Vith represented the right flank in the advance of the German center, 5th Panzer Division who were ultimately aiming their sights on Antwerp.

The small town of St. Vith was a vital road junction that was needed by the German's 5th and 6th armoured Panzer divisions. The town was also very near to the westernmost point of the Losheim Gap, which was a critical valley iwth densely forested ridges and was an axis point for the Allies' counteroffensive against this German front. The U.S. 28th Infantry Division were determined to succesfully resist the german attacks and thus intentionally slowing the German progress.

Death Rags, Barrel Socks and Radio communications are optional but highly recommended.
