The bitter fight for northern France and Belgium, sometimes called the Ardennes offensive and ultimately known as the Battle of the Bulge, began with a surprise attack on December 16th, 1944, and effectively ended with Allied containment of the German attack on December 27th. An astounding 410,000 German troops and 610,000 Allied troops fought.
