S1 E6: The Ardennes' offensive caught the Allies totally by surprise in December 1944. They had no idea that Hitler's forces, lead by Field Marshall Walther Model, were about to attack. The monocle-wearing Model had earned a reputation as Hitler's firefighter. He was coarse and crude, nicknamed 'the frontline pig'. His American counterpart, General Omar Bradley, was gentle, polite and cultured. They were to face off in freezing conditions in what was to be the bloodiest American engagement of the war, with over 80,000 casualties.
