LUCAS OIL STADIUM IS A BATTLEGROUND IN THE GREAT WAR

The first battle of the Great War was fought at the Battle of the Bulge.

The Bulge was the largest offensive by the German forces and the decisive battle for the Allies in Europe.

In a trench, the Allied forces fought to hold the key points, and the German troops and machine gunners were forced to retreat into the woods.

The battle was so important that it became known as “The Bulge”.

The trench is located just outside the city of Gorny, on the border of the Rhine Valley.

The trenches are the heart of the fighting, and a major source of supplies for the Germans.

In addition to the trenches, the area had a small camp which held prisoners.

The battle was fought during the final days of the war.

In May 1945, the Allies and the Germans agreed on a date for the invasion.

By August 1944, the Germans had already launched their invasion of France.

In the spring of 1945, General Dwight D. Eisenhower sent a force of about 500,000 soldiers to invade Germany.

In September 1945, an Allied invasion force, known as Operation Market Garden, launched a surprise attack on the German camp, but it failed.

In November, the allied forces moved into the area.

By this time, the German military was beginning to develop a network of underground bunkers that could hold the Germans’ weapons, including the heavy machine guns and artillery.

At the end of May 1945 the Germans began a retreat from Gornyr.

The retreating Germans abandoned their trenches and abandoned the town.

The Germans did not attempt to capture Gornys underground bunker, but the Germans retreated into the forest.

The forest was a safe haven for the German soldiers who could escape from their bunkers.

There were about 2,000 German prisoners in Gornyt.

They were taken into a prison camp at Gornym.

By September 1945 the prisoners were forced into the nearby city of Rücklin.

The Nazis did not surrender the prisoners, but they were shot.

There were about 1,400 German prisoners.

They too were shot at point blank range, and many of them died.

During the winter of 1945-1946, the Nazis took advantage of the heat and darkness to launch attacks on the city.

The German soldiers, who had been hiding underground, were forced out of the forest and into the city in a series of coordinated attacks.

With little food and no shelter, the enemy dug tunnels in the trees to hide their weapons.

Many of the German prisoners died of heat exhaustion and exposure.

Many German soldiers and officers were killed or suffered other injuries. 

In the spring, the town was recaptured.

During the fall, the village was retaken, and during the winter, the prisoners and prisoners of war were freed.

By spring of 1946, the liberated prisoners and the liberated German soldiers returned to Gornydt.

Although the Germans suffered heavy casualties during the battle, the victorious Allies gained the largest victory in World War II.

The Americans were able to liberate Gornyg, which they considered to be one of the greatest victories of World War I. Sources:  Wikipedia – Wikipedia – Wikipedia
