Yes the Blitz worked verey well for the Gremans when they were fighting the
poor. But when they tried that at the Battle of the buldge, Alot and I mean
alot of Germen tankmen had a very long walk home. For they never had the
Infantry to hold the ground or to flush out other infantry witch was one of
the things that lead to their early retirement from the war.
