This past June, Professor Gary Hylander discussed the events of D-Day.  Join us as Prof. Hylander returns to discuss the sequel to D-Day, the Battle of the Bulge.  The Battle of the Bulge marks the last German offensive of the war.  Over the objections of his generals, Hitler ordered a massive counter-attack against Allied forces in the area of the Ardennes Forest.  Hitler’s plan was to split the Anglo-American front and to seek a negotiated peace in the West.  With over 19,000 Americans killed, the Battle of the Bulge was the largest and bloodiest battle experienced by American forces in all of World War II.
