Just how much did the Hindenburg Line benefit Germany and hurt the Entente? I know that this line allowed Germany to shorten the length of the front lines in the West and thus to divert some of its military manpower to other fronts. However, was this actually decisive? As in, without the construction of the Hindenburg Line, would the CPs have collapsed and lost the war earlier than they did in real life? Any thoughts on this?
