This further advanced on a given line running from the Antwerp to Belgium, while its only First Canadian Army, which was under the famous Lieutenant-General, worked in a bid to pursue its task of eventually recapturing the wanted ports of Boulogne-sur-Mer, Dieppe, and Le Havre (Bradley, 1951). 

The Battle of the Bulge

The War also tested the courage and the fortitude of the American Army and their diversity. Since it was considered as the greatest war on land, it had great impacts on the economies of all the nations involved (Bradley, 1951).
