Battle of the Bulge?

During the Battle of the Bulge in World War II, Anthony McAuliffe commanded the 10lst Airborne Division at Bastogne (an area of considerable strategic importance). Surrounded and out-numbered by a four to one margin, McAuliffe and his troops were ordered to surrender by the Germans. McAuliffe's reply? "Nuts!"

[Another version has McAuliffe uttering a rather different expletive.]
