The initial assault on Marvie occurred on December 20th. Fritz Bayerlein, commander of the Panzer Lehr Division would commit a small, armor heavy unit to seize the town and open the door to Bastogne.
For the Germans, mobility and armored firepower were the key elements of their attack.
Bayerlein's forces would ultimately enjoy some early success as they fought house to house in Marvie. But a timely counterattack led by Sherman Tanks managed to reclaim the town for the US forces.
