On Germany's defeat in the Battle of the Bulge ...
Autumn Mist [the German codename for the operation] had inflicted 19,000 casualties on the US 12th Army, and had taken 15,000 American prisoners. But the cost to the German Army had been 100,000 men killed or wounded and 800 tanks destroyed - losses which could not be made up.
In contrast, Autumn Mist had merely caused a hiccup in the Allied preparations to break into Germany, while denying desperately needed reinforcements to the German Army on the Eastern Front.
