    I'm assuming you mean Bastogne. I think the bulge would have gotten closer to its Antwerp goal, but still would have petered out for lack of fuel.

      I doubt that much would have changed. The German attack had already reached its apex. There would probably have been more troops that made it back to German lines but otherwise not much different.

        Besides, the 101st didn't need to be relieved, so they could have held without Patton's Army coming to the rescue. I agree, wouldn't have changed a thing too much.
