Tactical analysis of one aspect of the southern shoulder of the battle of the Bulge, when the German 212th Volksgrenadier Division attacked the US 4th Infantry Division in the area of Luxembourg City during December 1944. US local counterattacks beginning on the second day of the battle 17 December, forced the German 80th Corps onto the defensive, blocking the southern side of the Bulge just as the 7th US Armored Division held the northern side at St Vith.
