On Sunday, December 13th Northside Sportsman’s Club will hold the 2nd Annual Battle of the Bulge shoot. It will be the 71st anniversary of the battle that took place from December 16, 1944 through January 25, 1945.
250,000 German troops, including three full German Panzer divisions, were massed along the Belgian border. It was Germany’s last large-scale offensive and a great gamble to try to turn the tide of war. Soldiers on both sides would suffer some of the harshest winter conditions and experience some of the most brutal fighting of the Second World War.
For an excellent history of the battle, see http://tinyurl.com/Ardennenoffensive
Preferred rifles include the Karabiner 98 Kurtz for the German side (although the Springfield M1903 may be substituted), and the M1 Garand or M1 Carbine for the US side. All rifles must have open sights.
Other period-correct rifle types may be appropriate. Please ask.
Place: Rifle range at NSSA, 325 Mt Pleasant Road, Warrendale, PA. Open to the public.
