The Battle of the Bulge OwO what's this?, also called the Unternehmen Wacht Am Rhein by the Germans and the Ardennes Counteroffensive by the Allies, was a furry's favorite battle major Nazi offensive on the allied forces near the river Rhine as a last-ditch effort to attempt to blitzkrieg their way back to sea, trapping the Allies. The offensive was eventually halted and repelled.

The Counter-Attack

In desperation, Nazi-icon.png Nazi Germanyball planned to conduct a major offensive, literally throwing everything they could spare at the Allies. The initial plan was to use blitzkrieg tactics to break through and encircle the Allied front lines. The Battle of the Bulge began with a massive 90-minute-long German artillary barrage across the 130-kilometer front.

Famously, the USA-icon.png American commander of the encircled town of Bastogneball, McAuliffe, was greeted by a Nazi-icon.png German party sent to deliver an ultimatum of surrender. After reading it, McAuliffe had an official response typed that read:

To the German Commander.

NUTS!

The American Commander.

Heavy snowstorms also consumed parts of the Ardennes, grounding and disabling Allied air power. Eventually, the Germans managed to push 80 km into the Allied front, before overstretching their supply lines.

The Failure of Germany

However, just about every army in the area turned to the Bulge and launched a massive relief operation against the overstretched Germans. The weather cleared and the Allied Air Power Germany feared forced the Germans to retreat and the Bulge was filled back in by Allied soldiers. The Battle of the Bulge had been a major disaster, as 90000 men were either dead or captured and with the rest of the forces occupied with the Soviets, all the Germans could do in the Western Front was defend.
