The Battle of the Bulge

The German Army threw 450,000 troops, 1,500 tanks, 2,600 artillery pieces, 1,000 combat aircraft, and 1,600 anti-tank guns at Allied forces through the densely forested Ardennes region of Wallonia in eastern Belgium, northeast France, and Luxembourg, achieving total surprise against the overconfident and underprepared Allies. It proved to be the bloodiest single battle fought by the United State during World War 2. Against such a staggering juggernaut, what possible effect could one soldier have?

If that soldier happens to be Sergeant Danny Bristol in command of his futuristic, Atomic Armored Vehicle 4000, the answer would be, a lot.

God help the Third Reich!

“I am a baby boomer, a 1949 model to be exact,” author Mike Carmichael muses. “As a child I remember listening to my dad and his friends talk about the war. As a result, I read a lot about World War 2. It was astounding to me the tenacity of these men; their fierce determination despite the atrocious conditions the were forced to operate in. There is a reason they were called The Greatest Generation. Sadly, as each year passes, there are fewer and fewer of these heroes left to tell their tales. AVIE is a bit of my tribute to them.”
