Best Answer

The outcome of the Battle of the Bulge (i.e. the defeat and rollback of German forces) ensured that the Allies would meet much less resistance in their attempt to cross the Rhine. Although that was probably little consolation for those soldiers who fought and died in the battle. This was because Hitler chose to throw his reinforcements into the Ardennes Offensive rather than distribute them to the weakened forces defending the river. It helps to mention that in any case Germany was going to lose the war no matter what at that point in time, the only thing that Hitler could hope to do was to increase Allied/Soviet losses or drag out the ending in the hope that some miracle might happen to turn the tide.
