Cobi M4A1 Sherman Battle of the Bulge Pictures

With Spring around the corner and a few last snow flurries here and there, we figured that it was a good time to do some COBI M4A1 Sherman Battle of the Bulge pictures!

Here at Warbricks, we believe learning history should be fun! That is why we always include historical information and links to learn more in our post and COBI brick product pages.

Also, at the bottom of this post we have a speed build video of the COBI Sherman Tank 🙂

About the Battle of the Bulge:

The Battle of the Bulge was one of the most famous battles of WWII.  Most well known for frigid temperatures and bad weather, the Battle of the Bulge started on December 16, of 1944 in the early morning hours and lasted until January 25, 1945.

The German forces achieved a complete surprise attack even though the allied Intelligence had predicted the date, time and location of the attack.  The location of the battle was in the densely forested Ardennes region in eastern Belgium (great waffles with strawberries and whip cream 🙂 ) and was intended to encircle the allied armies and force surrender negotiations.

During the Battle of the Bulge, the Germans mobilized approximately 450,000 troops and 1,500 tanks and assault guns (see our German Tiger Tank and Anti Tank Gun here.)

The allies lost approximately 89,000 troops out of the 610,000 sent to the battle (we couldn’t find the number of tanks and vehicles the allies mobilized).

About the COBI M4A1 Sherman:

The COBI M4A1 Sherman is a Lego compatible brick set made in Poland by COBI Toys.  The COBI Sherman has 480 pieces and one mini figure.  The tracks work just like the real M4A1 Sherman tank and there are many movable parts.  We personally think the COBI M4 Sherman is a great way to learn about history while having fun!  We love playing with it and so will you!

Seeing the weather in Billings, Montana blessed us with some snow, we decided to take some pictures to honor the sacrifice of the U.S. soldiers during the Battle of the Bulge!  In the pictures, we used the COBI M4A1 Sherman Tank (D-Day Edition) and a COBI M5 Stewart Light Tank (Discontinued).  The M5 Stewart was the first COBI brick set we purchased and helped inspire us to start warbricks.com, unfortunately it is currently discontinued.

What was your first COBI set? How do you like to learn or teach history? Sound off in the comments.
