In this Jan. 6, 1945 file photo, American tanks wait on the snowy slopes in Bastogne,Belgium. It was 75 years ago that Hitler launched his last desperate attack to turn the tide for Germany in World War II. At first, German forces drove so deep through the front line in Belgium and Luxembourg that the month-long fighting came to be known as The Battle of the Bulge.
