The Battle of the Bulge was important to the Allied forces because it was the last major German offensive of World War II. The German goal was to split the Allied forces and potentially negotiate a separate peace with the Western Allies. However, the resilience and determination of the Allied troops, coupled with logistical challenges faced by the Germans, resulted in a successful defense and halted Hitler's plan, leading to eventual Allied victory.
it is called an irrelevant spit. it is called this because it is in between bulges and is basicly what you call irrelevant
I did read somewhere that someon had a problem with playing this game on his ps3 after downloading the mod that allows ps2 games to be played on a ps3. He said that the ps3 had an error message. Someone told him to delete his mod saying that it worked for him. So yes. It SHOULD work. xD
Invasion of PolandFrom Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Invasion of Poland, also known as the September Campaign or 1939 Defensive War (Polish: Kampania wrześniowa or Wojna obronna 1939 roku) in Poland and the Poland Campaign (German: Polenfeldzug) in Germany, was an invasion of Poland by Nazi Germany, the Soviet Union, and a small Slovak contingent that marked the start of World War II. The invasion began on 1 September 1939, one week after the signing of the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact, and ended 6 October 1939 with Germany and the Soviet Union dividing and annexing the whole of Poland.
The day after the Gleiwitz incident, German forces invaded Poland from the north, south, and west. As the Germans advanced, Polish forces withdrew from their forward bases of operation close to the Polish-German border to more established lines of defence to the east. After the mid-September Polish defeat in the Battle of the Bzura, the Germans gained an undisputed advantage. Polish forces then withdrew to the southeast where they prepared for a long defence of the Romanian Bridgehead and awaited expected French and British support and relief.
The Battle of the Bulge (officially called Operation Watch on the Rhine by the Germans and the Ardennes-Alsace Campaign by the Americans) was fought in Belgium.
The "Bulge" refers to a large bulge (approx 50 miles deep and 35 miles across) in the Allied front line where the Germans pushed the Allies back at the start of the campaign
About 1,330,000 men were involved in the Battle of the Bulge
My father was in the 59th Signal Battalion in WWII. They were definitely involved in the Battle of the Bulge (Ardennes campaign). Some members of the battalion were actually stranded in Bastogne for a while. This was a very nasty fight.
u saw a bulge in ur employees coat pocket and u thought that he was stealing something, and u hit him with ur yardstick. the once little catfight turned into a full blown battle when george washington stuck his wooden teeth in ur face and his axe (yip, the very one he cut down his fathers cherry tree with!) in ur employees face!

Truman had no idea the atomic bomb was being developed. He was not even vice president when president Franklin D. Roosevelt authorized the development of the atomic bomb on October 9, 1941 after a meeting with Vannevar Bush and then vice president Henry A. Wallace. At this time the United States was not even officially involved in WW2. Truman was first informed of the development of the atomic bomb by secretary of war Henry L. Stimson shortly after Franklin D. Roosevelt died in April 1945 only months before the first atomic bomb was tested. Effectively the atomic bomb was already completely developed before Truman was even aware of it, all that remained to be done was proof testing and combat use (and Franklin D. Roosevelt had already put the military wheels in action before his death for selection of target cities in Japan, although this selection process was not complete until late May 1945).
On the Allied side it scared them. Everyone from the most recent replacement private to the Supreme Allied Commander was of the opinion that the war was over. They were resting up for a "all done push" into Germany"s heartland.
The German's failure to punch through in this endeavor was the "final straw". It was over at the point of their witdrawal. When the troops began to pull out there was only a slim hope that somehow they would survive to see their homes again.
Even General Eisenhower was looking for some way out. He accepted "Operation Market Garden" as the way to end WW-2 in Europe. That failed.
many people banged eachother and died
During World War II the United States operated 24 Aircraft Carriers (Designated CV), 9 Light Aircraft Carriers (CVL), and 77 Escort Aircraft Carriers (CVE). Losses were as follows:
CVs Lost Four (4): CV-2 Lexington CV-5 Yorktown CV-7 Wasp CV-8 Hornet
CVLs Lost One (1): CVL-23 Princeton
CVEs Lost Five (5): CVE-21 Block Island CVE-56 Liscome Bay CVE-63 Midway CVE-73 Gambier Bay CVe-95 Bismarck Sea
Thus a total of ten (10) aircraft carriers of all types were lost. Note the Navy's first aircraft carrier Langley was also lost but was considered a seaplane tender at the time being redesignated AV-3. All data from Samuel Eliot Morison, History of U.S. Naval Operations in WWII, Supplement and General Index.
According to the USS Arizona historical site (link below) there are currently 19 known survivors (18 Navy, 1 Marine) still alive as of April 26, 2011. There are approximately a dozen others who are unaccounted for that may or may not still be alive.
There really wasn't much of a possibility of that, but if it had happened, Allied forces would have counter-attacked after a brief re-grouping and planning phase. Allied forces would never have allowed Germany to control Europe.
Edit; The German tanks and troops would have been bombed out of existence within a few days. In fine weather the Allied air-power was phenomenal by 1945 and the German, almost non-existent.
Prisoners were not buried. Only those who died. Large cemeteries exist today in towns for soldiers who died in the battle. Families of Americans did have the chance to return the bodies of loved ones back to America at the conclusion of the war. They had to do so at their own expense and many families could not afford the high cost of transporting the body back home. So thousands of American soldiers are laid to rest in cemeteries all over Europe today
The "bulge", as seen on a map of the areas of control by the Allies and the Germans, was an area of the front that became extended (bulged) into the mostly American lines in the Ardennes region of Belgium and Luxembourg.
The Germans had hoped to break through to the river Meuse and surround various Allied army units. The fighting from December 16, 1944 to January 7, 1945 was the last major German offensive of the war, and resulted in the abandonment of large numbers of their tanks and other motorized vehicles due to lack of fuel.
The 'bulge' was the frontline that protruded out in the region of the Ardennes Mountains (specifically around the town of Bastogne). The Allied forces at that time had control of the area and Nazi forces sought to take the region, as the town of Bastogne gave full access to the 8 supply routes in the region (all 8 roads came together in Bastogne). The Germans used the 'bulge' against us by cutting it off at the sides and surrounding the Allied troops within it.
The US Navy supports the current activities in the Middle East. Air craft carriers provide sortees on a regular basis. These flights patrol for opposing air craft and are prepared to support ground troops. Naval vessels also fired Cruise missiles on targets.

Well, WW 2 was not in 1915, but your Luger pistol may be worth anywhere from $100 to several thousand dollars, depending on the exact model, markings, and condition. There is no way to judge from the information in your question. The best estimate would come from a dealer that knows Luger pistols. If all else fails, see if the are some gun shows in your area- you should find several dealers that can give you an estimate of worth.
What is called the Battle of the Bulge in the United States was part of the German Ardennes Offensive of 1944. It was a last-gasp effort by the German Army to stave off defeat in the Western European Theater - its primary goal was the Belgian city of Antwerp, the major port from which Allied supplies were flooding onto the continent. It was hoped by that re-taking Antwerp, the Allied forces in Western Europe could be contained long enough to possibly negotiate a peace (or, alternately, allow for more time for Hitler's Superweapons (the various V-rockets and jet aircraft) to play a significant role).
While initially successful, mostly due to failures of Allied tactical planners to appreciate that a major German offensive was in the making, the German attack ultimately stalled due to lack of fuel. As the weather cleared a week or so after the battle began, Allied tactical aircraft ravaged stalled German units, and prevented the furthest penetrating German units from resupplying.
In the end, the offensive was a German failure, and a strategic Allied victory, as the German army lost most of its remaining quality units, and the Luftwaffe effectively ceased to exist. The Battle of the Bulge was the last significant German offensive of WW2.
Shot by firing squad after trying to assassinate Hitler.
He was immediately shot after his arrest, without a trial.
it was the failed, last-ditch German offensive
