On December 16th, 1944, Hitler and his Nazis launched one final offensive in an attempt to stop Allied use of the port at Antwerp, split Allied lines, circle and destroy Allied forces, and strong-arm their way into a peace treaty. Initially achieving overwhelming surprise and setting the Allies back on their heels, Nazi forces soon came to a grinding halt when they encountered fierce resistance from American forces to the north around Elsenborn Ridge and to the south around Bastogne. Suffering from broken and inadequate supply lines, and unable to displace the dug-in Allies, the Nazis slowly lost ground each day of the 5-week campaign — now known as The Battle of the Bulge — eventually leading to their decisive defeat on January 25th. Demonstrating incredible courage and determination, American soldiers — particularly the gritty paratroopers — endured unimaginable suffering and overcame overwhelming odds on their way to victory.
The Battle of the Bulge was the largest and bloodiest single battle fought by American forces in World War II, and is still, to this day, the largest battle ever fought by the U.S. Army. Our own great great uncle Roy, an enlisted soldier who landed at Normandy, was there for the battle. My brother and I carry on his legacy through CIVVIESUPPLY today, and we're proud to launch The Battle of the Bulge Map to commemorate the battle and celebrate the grit of the hard, courageous men who fought it.
We screenprint these premium, heavy-paper posters the old-school way — by hand — right here in our hometown of Columbia, South Carolina. This ain't no thin, cheap poster, kids. It's 100% American-made, archival, museum-quality artwork that you can frame and pass on to your children. (Or tape it on the wall of your room in the barracks for motivation — we're good either way.)
The Battle of the Bulge Map does *not* include a frame.
HONOR THE PAST. INSPIRE THE FUTURE.
Franklin and Thomas — the CIVVIESUPPLY* brothers — grew up in Lexington, South Carolina with a profound appreciation for the United States of America. Stories from their grandfathers — both former Army officers — about numerous family members who fought in almost every major conflict inspired the brothers to attend The Citadel, the Military College of South Carolina and later join the US Army. Thomas, an Airborne and Ranger-qualified Infantry officer, served on active duty from 2016 to 2022, and now serves in the SC Army National Guard, where Franklin has served as a Public Affairs officer since 2016.
Their love of country and desire to be apart of something greater than themselves led them to launch CIVVIESUPPLY in 2018. They’d encourage you to join the community of CIVVIESUPPLY patriots in their mission of honoring the past to inspire the future.
