70Km west of Budapest along the Danube River, December 31st 1944: As the final year of the war dawned, the IV SS Panzer Korps launched the opening phases of what would really be the last German offensive of the war. Even though all the forces had not yet arrived at the start line, a surprise attack was launched in two sectors - one with available mobile forces in the Tata region and a second where two river crossings on the Danube had been established by the 96.ID and the Hungarian Szent-Laszio Division. Both sides hastily moved more troops into the region each trying to out trump the other. In the end, after a week of fighting the Germans had to re-think their approach and find a new pressure point to continue the drive to the encircled troops in Budapest.
