About the Battle of the Bulge:
The German Ardennes Offensive starting in late December 1944, popularly known as the Battle of the Bulge, was the last major German offensive on the Western Front in World War II. It was intended that the German army would split the Allied line in half, capture Antwerp, sweep north and encircle and destroy four Allied armies, thus forcing them to negotiate for peace.

Although unsuccessful, it nevertheless tied down huge amounts of Allied resources, and a slow response to the resulting gap in their lines erased months from their timetable. An alternative analysis is that the offensive allowed the Allies to severely deplete the cream of German army outside the defenses of the West Wall and in poor supply state, greatly easing the assault on Germany afterward. In numerical terms, it is the largest battle the United States Army has ever fought.

About Dragon's "Magic Tracks":
These tracks come ready to assemble, with no clean up necessary! They even snap together using a tight friction fit for easy assembly. Just a light application of glue afterwards is all that is needed -- the magic of Magic Tracks!
