    • Synopsis
    • In the early winter of 1945, the U.S. Army is working hard to stem the tide of the German offensive that later became known as the ‘Battle of the Bulge’.

      Battling not only the Germans, but fatigue, fear and a constantly rotating leadership, the story of ‘Kaltenhouse’ focuses on the men of the Rainbow Divisions’ ‘G’ Company through the eyes of its infantrymen, in particular Tommy and his buddie Willie – the two mortar men of the group. The story takes place during the last days of the Battle of the Bulge – the bloodiest battle of World War II – and culminates in the final offensive of the Germans near Kaltenhouse, France on January 25th, 1945, where the outnumbered Americans defeated the better equipped and supplied Germans. On April 29th, the Rainbow Division liberated the Dachau Concentration Camp, followed by the Allach satellite camp on April 30th. Hitler died that same day.

There is clearly a great respect shown for the characters within the story and a dedication towards portraying their heroic endeavors.” – Shore Scripts
