Doesn't really seem like 72 years ago

Really, feels like yesterday, but it was 72 years ago, on December 16, 1944, that the Germans launched the attack that gave us the Battle of the Bulge. StrategyPage is posting daily photos from the pivotal World War II conflict, including this rare color photo:


M-4 Sherman Tanks Lined up in a Snow Covered Field, near St. Vith, Belgium. Note: This photo was probably taken after the 23rd of December when skies began to clear. You will notice the blue skies in this rare color photo from the battle.

The cutline is StrategyPage's, not mine. Hat tip to Instapundit. Lots more photos at the StrategyPage link.
