Split seconds before 5:30 A.M. on Saturday, December 16, 1944, an American soldier from Company K, 110th Infantry, manning an observation post atop a concrete water tower in the village of Hosingen, telephoned his company commander. In the distance on the German side of the Our, he could see a strange phenomenon: countless flickering pinpoints of light. Moments later they both had an explanation.......they were the flashes of German guns and The Battle of the Bulge had begun!
