This is the Signed original Gouache painting by Ron Embleton.

The Battle of the Bulge (16 December 1944 - 25 January 1945) was the last major German offensive campaign of World War II. It was launched through the densely forested Ardennes region of Wallonia in Belgium, France, and Luxembourg, on the Western Front, towards the end of World War II, in the European theatre.

The surprise attack caught the Allied forces completely off guard. 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 armoured forces on the Western Front, and they were largely unable to replace them. German personnel and later, Luftwaffe aircraft (in the concluding stages of the engagement), also sustained heavy losses.

Embleton appears to modelled his painting on a well known photograph showing members of the U.S. 117th Infantry Regiment moving past a destroyed American M5A1 "Stuart" tank.
