General Anthony Clement "Nuts" McAuliffe (July 2, 1898 – August 11, 1975) was the United States Army general who commanded the 101st Airborne Division troops defending Bastogne, Belgium during the Battle of the Bulge in World War II. He is famous for his single-word reply to a German surrender ultimatum: "Nuts!"

After the Battle of the Bulge, McAuliffe was given command of his own division, the 103rd Infantry Division of the US 7th Army, which he led from January 15, 1945, to July 1945.

He was born in Washington, D.C., on July 2, 1898. McAuliffe was a student at West Virginia University from 1916 to 1917. He entered West Point in June 1917 as a member of the Class of 1921. Because of World War I, the class underwent a special shortened training and graduated on November 1, 1918. He rose through the ranks to Four-star General in 1955.
