Summary
December 1944: Deep in the ardennes forest, a platoon of 18 men under the command ot 21 year old Lyle Bouck huddle in their foxholes. Under attack and vastly outnumbered, they repulse three German assaults in a fierce day-long battle, killing over 500 Germans. Only when Bouck's men run out of ammunition do they surrender. As POWs they experience an ordeal far worse than combat - trigger-happy German guards. Allied bombing raids, and a daily ration of thin soup. Somehow, they all miraculously survive
