Battle of the Bulge

Powerline notes that this week is the 60th anniversary of the Battle of the Bulge, or Wacht am Rhein as the Germans called it.  However, I will say that "nuts" was not my favorite quote coming from the 101st Airborn.  My favorite was the one from about every soldier in the 101 when asked how it felt to be "rescued" by Patton.  Their nearly universal answer was, and still is, that no one in the 101st ever thought they needed to be rescued.  I don't know if it is apocryphal, but as Captain Winters in Band of Brothers says "We're paratroopers, we're supposed to be surrounded."
