The Germans hoped to break through the Allied line and drive all the way to Antwerp, which is one of the very largest ports in the world, and was just coming online as the Allied supply depot for the eventual drive into the heart of Germany. The attack fell almost entirely on American troops, with the spearpoint at the juncture between the US 9th Army to the north and US 1st Army to the south. Perhaps some Germans dreamed of being able, after breaking through, to turn forces both north and south and "roll up" both segments of the now severed Allied line, but this was hardly realistic. (The British and Canadians were to the north of the US 9th Army, at the extreme northern end of the Allied line). The Germans gathered a powerful force for the attack, but one feature of their plan points up the desperation of the entire shceme: its success depended on capturing enough Allied gasoline to keep their tanks moving, because they had very little of their own. As events played out the attacking Germans, though they did break through, were never able to get past the next natural obstacle in their path, the Meuse River.

In this 22 year time-span, 4.6 million contracts were signed, with many individuals returning multiple times on different contracts, making it the largest U.S. contract labor program.
