RESTRICTEDBATTLE OF BULGE1.When the Allies landed at Normandy on June 6, 1944, the Germans were dealt apsychological blow. Previously, they had been virtually invincible in Western Europe,and then, with little loss of life, the Allies had successfully landed a massive force ofsixteen divisions in only five days. 2.If that weren't bad enough, the Allies then began their own blitzkrieg. Paris,Brussels, and Tournai were liberated by September. However, this advance was soon tobe halted and turned for the worse. German forces had stopped the Allied advance at theSiegfried Line. The German plan for pushing back the Allies was to take Antwerp, and itsharbors, and cut off Allied troops in Belgium and Holland and make it impossible forthem to withdraw. To further this end, specially trained German soldiers that couldspeak English were put into American uniforms and snuck across Allied lines were theywere to create confusion. 3.On December 16, 1944, the German army launched its last great counteroffensive. This battle was to be Hitler's last stand and break apart the allied alliance.
