German special operations in the Ardennes Offensive

The German offensive in the Ardennes in the winter of 1944 came as a shock to the Allies, and was backed up with some special operations troops dressed as Allied soldiers, aiming to disrupt the defenders efforts. This is an account of two of these operations - “Greif” and “Stoesser.”  The first was as mentioned a covert disruptive operation, the second the last German airborne operation of the war. The paper accounts for the failure of these operations and is a thought-provoking work especially in relation to later covert operations. With a chronology, maps and OrBats of the German forces.
