Description:

The paper graphically describes the Battle of the Bulge that served as the final breaking point for Hitler's Third Reich. The paper relates that although tens of thousands of lives were lost on both sides, the Battle of the Bulge served as one of the greatest military engagements in the war in Europe.

From the Paper:

"The war plan that eventually culminated in the Battle of the Bulge was first realized in the mind of Adolph Hitler, a plan conceived out of pure desperation sometime in July of 1944 and considered over and over by Hitler throughout the month of August. His greatest concern at the time were the war reports that kept filtering into his secret headquarters in Rastenburg in East Prussia, reports that detailed how the Allies were managing to infiltrate Germany from practically every direction. But for Adolph Hitler, these reports, despite their grim statistics, did not deter him from believing that the war could be reversed in the favor of Germany."
