The Battle of the Bulge also known as Battle of the Ardennes began on December 16 1944 at about 530 in the morning This was supposed to be Hitlers last attempt on trying to defeat the Allied forces He thought that the bond between the British the US and Russia was weak so he didnt have to worry about the three countries joining forces and outnumbering him He also thought that he had enough troops to launch a surprise attack on the Western Front He believed that things like bad weather-especially the cold rugged terrain and the Christmas holiday would probably catch the Allied Forces by surprise Hitler planned on lowering Allied air power and cutting off a main supply base for the armies on the Western Front If he did that he would be able to surround Canadas 1st army Britains 2nd Army and the USs 1st and 9th armies And if that happened the northern forces would all be surrounded and they would be cut off from supplies and the southern forces would be pushed out of Germany Hitler expected it to be an easy fight The night before the battle Hitler sent in troops to infiltrate the front Some of the troops were dropped in a parachute and some others drove American jeeps They spoke considerable English and wore American uniforms so that they wouldnt look suspicious They tried to confuse the US army by cutting down telephone lines giving false directions changing signs on the roads and just creating havoc The battle began at the crack of dawn Hitler managed to push back American forces Because of surprise lack of communication and being outnumbered it gave Hitler a great chance of success But after two days of fighting the Germans had not made very much progress but Hitler did manage to attack two southern American divisions and surround the least experienced division
