During World War II on this day in 1944, the Battle of the Bulge began in
Belgium. It was the final major German counteroffensive in the war.

The Germans achieved a total surprise attack due to a combination of
Allied overconfidence, preoccupation with Allied offensive plans, and
poor
aerial reconnaissance due to bad weather. American forces bore
the brunt of the attack and incurred their highest casualties of any
operation during the war. The battle also severely depleted Germany’s
armored forces, and they were largely unable to replace them.

The "Bulge" was the largest and bloodiest single battle fought by the
United States in World War II and the
third deadliest campaign in
American history
.

John Fitzgerald Kennedy (May 29, 1917 – November 22, 1963)

President John F. Kennedy decided to increase military aid to South Vietnam without committing U.S. combat troops.

Kennedy was concerned at the advances being made by the communist Viet
Cong, but did not want to become involved in a land war in Vietnam. He
hoped that the military aid would be sufficient to strengthen the Saigon
government and its armed forces against the Viet Cong. Ultimately it was
not, and Kennedy ended up sending additional support in the form of U.S.
military advisors and American helicopter units. By the time of his
assassination in 1963, there were 16,000 U.S. soldiers in South
Vietnam.
