The Unknown Dead

Peter Schrijvers

University Press of Kentucky

This chapter examines the Allied forces' efforts to flatten the “bulge” during the final stages of the Battle of the Bulge. The Allied offensive phase started in earnest on January 3, 1945, led by George S. Patton, with simultaneous attacks from the north and the west launched first. By January 25, the Allied forces have successfully eliminated the bulge. This chapter suggests that the German forces' killing of civilians continued until the very end of this battle.

Keywords:   Battle of the Bulge, Allied forces, German forces, civilian casualties, George S. Patton
