The Battle of the Bulge, also known as the Battle of Ardennes, was fought in the Ardennes region of Belgium during the Second World War in December 1944. It was launched by the Germans, acting as repetition of the Blitzkrieg tactic they initiated in 1940. It proved to be their last major offensive operation of the war. The battlefront was visited by the Eighth Doctor, Sam Jones and Fitz Kreiner on 15 December.

According to Colonel Herbert Elgar, the German Army's initial progress in the offensive was "making everyone in Paris feel jittery." The French still had painful memories of Germany advancing into their country at the beginning of the war as well as during World War I and feared yet another repeat. However, there was ultimately little chance of the Germans advancing deep into France and reclaiming all the territory once again. American Marines confidently claimed that the battle would "all be over in a month or two." (PROSE: The Turing Test)
