Gen Anthony C. McAuliffe
Birth: Jul. 3, 1898
Washington
District of Columbia
District Of Columbia, USA
Death: Aug. 11, 1975
Chevy Chase
Montgomery County
Maryland, USA

He was commander of division artillery of the 101st Airborne Division when he parachuted into Normandy on D-Day and when he entered Holland by glider in 1944. In December 1944, due to the absence of General Maxwell D. Taylor, he was acting commander of the 101st Airborne Division and other attached troops during the siege of Bastogne, Belgium. When they became surrounded and the Germans demanded their surrender, he sent back a one-word reply "NUTS". This is probably the most famous quote of World War II.
