The US Military Police played a very important, though mostly unrecognized, role in the Battle of the Bulge. In a battle of maneuver with divisions retreating and later advancing across a dispersed road net, the military police played a key role in manning critical crossroads and assisting units getting to where they needed to go and sorting out the inevitable traffic jams. They also played a critical role in detecting and apprehending German saboteurs behind the allied lines. Several were killed in action performing their various tasks and many were engaged in ad hoc small individual skirmishes that go largely unrecorded.
