For all the commanders of military forces, it’s hard to rush their soldiers into any battle if they are not sure in its possible outcomes. For example, the plan of Hitler to turn the war around was quite outrageous, and many of German plans were being overheard by Allied forces. In 1944, the last hopes of Hitler were put out when bombing didn’t go as good as intended. There are many unique and unbelievable facts about the so-called Battle of Bulge.
What is this battle all about? Basically, the bulge was Germans expanding their territories, and they were pushing the Allied forced, mainly the ones of Britain and the US, west, while these forces pushed them back into Germany in the end of WWII. In 1944 (September), Hitler called the meeting in East Prussia and he revealed his plans for a huge war attack on Antwerp. The main target of this attack was breaking up the communication between the Allies so that they were supposed to become frustrated and disorganized from one another. This situation would finally result in delays in their attacks on Germans.
Besides, this attack would provide Hitler with enough time to get more manpower and natural resources to improve his war positions. His advisors didn’t agree with his ideas and this plan, and they proposed him to start a smaller attack to cripple the defense of Antwerp to make further attacks easier, but Hitler objected. He strongly believed that the Allies would believe that his country chose a defensive position and he expected for bad weather conditions to stop airplanes of this enemies to fly.
The basic plan of Hitler was to move 21 divisions to the Meuse River, and they had to win 4 Allied armies on their way and keep going without any supplies and reinforcements. At that time, many secret war massages were sent, and all of them were decoded. Hitler did everything possible to keep his plan discrete, and all commanding officers were obliged to sign a paper and swear to keep this secret.
In summary, the Battle of Bugle was the last chance of Germany to win this war so that Hitler mobilized all available forces. He wanted to cut the Allied forced into a few parts to win them easily. His basic goal was surprising his enemies and separating their army fast. This spot was chosen because it was easy to hide German troops in the hills. The good news is that his dreams didn’t come true and this war was lost for Hitler, despite his power, influence, and attempts.
