December Footnote 4: "number of men"

Originally a part of the Pennsylvania National Guard, the 28th Division, which had been fighting since normandy and had incurred such losses in the Huertgen Forest that people had begun calling its red bucket-shaped keystone patch the 'Bloody bucket,' held such an elongated defensive front that each of the panzer corps was destined to strike little more than a regiment.
