Road to Victory Part II: Battle of the Bulge, Crossing the Rhine and the Fall of Berlin

March 26, 2016 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

In August 1944 there was hope that the Allies might end the war in Europe by Christmas. Unfortunately that did not happen. Instead in December Hitler launched the Ardennes Offensive or what became known as the “Battle of the Bulge” which caught the Allies off-balance. It was the largest, bloodiest battle that the Allies would fight in Western Europe during World War II. Historian Ed Gordon will discuss salient questions on this battle including: Why did it happen? How did Hitler fool the Allies? Where did the Germans obtain their forces for this offensive? Why was the Allied line so weak at the German point of attack?
