The Battle of the Bulge was the last major German offensive in the West and the largest and most costly battle fought by the US Army in World War II.
Resulting in over 100,000 German and 80,000 American casualties, it turned an apparent defeat into what British Prime Minister Winston Churchill called 'an ever famous American victory'.
This book describes the decisive campaign of the war in northwest Europe, as three German armies attacked through the Ardennes, almost breaking through the American lines in Hitler's last, final throw of the dice.
Providing a full account of the campaign strategy; the American and German forces and command; their equipment and tanks; and, a detailed account of the fighting, this is essential reading for anyone interested in World War II.
