How would you interpret ‘German Bulge’ here? The changes you suggest in the story will render it much improved. However, I’m not able to consult the pages you mentioned, as the book rests entirely in your hands. You have the only copy. (The envelope also may be the sole issue of its litter.) Paper remains scarce here. Any shortages in supply lines at the German Bulge were not due to failure of enthusiasm for the paper and scrap drives in Asheville, North Carolina. Thus, it would be useful to have the manuscript returned for corrections, at your convenience. How would you interpret ‘German Bulge’ in the context? Does it refer to someplace in Germany? Or does it refer to ‘Battle of the Bulge’? Thanks!

I had heard of the Battle of the Bulge but, like you, not "German Bulge". I checked Wikipedia and the Battle of the Bulge is not named after anywhere called "Bulge" but the English word, which described the shape of the Allied front line. In the chapter of your book, my best guess is that "German Bulge" relates to a front line of German troops somewhere which was bulging in a way similar to the Allied front line of troops in the Battle of the Bulge.
