Big stab in the dark but going for Aachen seem to remember that i read somewhere that the Yanks rolled burning carts in to the town before they took it may be wrong?

Nop, it's clearly in Normandy but it's really hard to locate precisely the site :S

Is that map from GJS, the one with the planes on the northern fields.

I think but I'm not sure is the one above pegasus bridge.

It may be more familiar snow covered.

OK, I've got it :)

This is Baugnez near Malmedy


Malmedy massacre
----------------------------------
At 12:30 on 17 December, Kampfgruppe Peiper was near the hamlet of Baugnez, on the height halfway between the town of Malmedy and Ligneuville, when they encountered elements of the 285th Field Artillery Observation Battalion, U.S. 7th Armored Division. After a brief battle the lightly armed Americans surrendered. They were disarmed and, with some other Americans captured earlier (approximately 150 men), sent to stand in a field near the crossroads under light guard. About fifteen minutes after Peiper's advance guard passed through, the main body under the command of SS Sturmbannführer Werner Pötschke arrived. For reasons unknown to this day, the SS troopers suddenly opened fire on the prisoners. As soon as the firing began, the prisoners panicked. Most were shot where they stood, though some managed to flee. Accounts of the killing vary, but 84 of the POWs were murdered. A few survived, and news of the killings of prisoners of war raced through Allied lines. Following the end of the war, soldiers and officers of Kampfgruppe Peiper, including Joachim Peiper and SS general Sepp Dietrich, were tried for the incident at the Malmedy massacre trial.

That is indeed correct. Did my snow clue give away too much?

The cut fire hoses clue... can;t remember where I read that now! One of the German soldiers found guilty in this case was sentenced to life imprisonment. Released in the 1950s he moved to France. His home was set on fire at night and the fire crew that was sent to respond had their water hoses slashed. The ex-soldier died in the fire.

Oddly similar to the fate of Peiper himself:

from the wiki:

"he was shot by unknown assailants who then burned his house to the ground using Molotov cocktails."

It drove me towards the battle of the bulge but I wouldn't say it made the job :)
