This playthrough covers turns 5-8 (December 24th-31st, 1944) as the Germans failed to breakout. Their offensive has faltered and a preponderance of American forces are flowing in to plug the gaps. Beginning their counteroffensive, the Allies are slowly pushing the Bulge back, with American divisions retaking Bastogne and crossing the Ambleve in the north.

But the Germans still hold Houffalize and St. Vith, both crucial to victory in the coming turns. With the impending withdrawal of SS divisions, can the Germans maintain a grip on their gains?

Stay tuned for the finale.
