This Battle of the Bulge was a failure for Germany. The Allies tried and executed 18 German soldiers for their role in Operation Greif, many before the battle was even over. The soldiers were technically out of uniform and considered spies. Sneaking around and committing acts of sabotage didn’t help their legal defense.
