My dio figure are a 2:an Rangers in new falling snow.
The Battle of Hürtgen Forest (German: Schlacht im Hürtgenwald) is the name given to the series of fierce battles fought between U.S. and German forces during World War II in the Hürtgen Forest, which became the longest battle on German ground during World War II, and the longest single battle the U.S. Army has ever fought in its history. The battles took place between September 14, 1944, and February 10, 1945, over barely 50 mi² (129 km²), east of the Belgian–German border.

Excellent bash from an all too overlooked battle! Often forgotten in lieu of Market Garden and the Bulge, it's only recently come into the limelight. HBO did a pretty good film called "When Trumpets Fade" set during the Hurtgen Forest (they released it a few months after "Saving Private Ryan" came out.)

Nice bash, I agree with the others, it's good to see this battle remembered.
It really was a horrible meat grinder. Thanks for sharing, it's been a while since we saw you.

Cheers
Tim

Nice work!

The base and the weathering on the figure look great! Made me feel cold while looking at the photos!
