It's December 15, 1944 and somewhere in front of the vast, impenetrable Ardennes Forest in Belgium. A couple of GI's are heating up some Krations when a pair of hungry Belgian kids (and their even hungrier mutt) show up. These two guys do what any decent GI's would... they make the kids welcome and prepare to share their hot meal. Behind them the ruins of a fireplace form a realistic backdrop. Little do all of them know that within 24 hours the Germans will launch the last, great Nazi offensive of World War Two!
