Taking Charge by Sean Sullivan

  • January 13, 1945: Nearly a month after the Battle of the Bulge began, American forces are back on the offensive. At the Belgian village of Foy, Lt. Ron Speirs leads Easy Company, 506th P.I.R., 101st Airborne against an entrenched enemy.

    Earlier, a shaky officer had stopped the attack prematurely, causing Capt. Richard Winters to send in Speirs to take charge.

    Having rallied the men, Speirs now leads the final E-Company assault. At Foy and in the days to follow, the Allied breakout would prove unstoppable, and the Battle of the Bulge would end in victory.
