The Battle Of The Bulge

10 pages in length. Quickly losing ground and heading for defeat, Hitler realized that he had to come up with a military attack that would impede the Allied progress; as such, the Battle of the Bulge was waged with overwhelming fervor. This, the last major offensive by the German Army, was devised as a counterattack against the Allied invasion in Belgium’s Ardennes region. While there may have been little else for Hitler to construct due to America’s successful military infiltration, the Battle of the Bulge proved to render Germany even more vulnerable than before the all-out attack. The United States perspective of the Battle of the Bulge clearly recognized the desperation that compelled Hitler’s actions; it would be only a matter of time before his plan backfired. Indeed, American troops suffered losses, but the final outcome proved to ultimately sustain United States military interests. Bibliography lists 10 sources.
