Lorraine, 1944 : Patton Vs. Manteuffel Paperback
Edited by David Chandler
Part of the Osprey Military Campaign S. series
Osprey's examination of the confrontation between the US Army and German forces in Lorraine during World War II (1939-1945).
In the wake of the defeat in Normandy in the summer of 1944, Hitler planned to stymie the Allied advance by cutting off Patton's Third Army in the Lorraine with a great Panzer offensive.
But Patton's aggressive tactics continued to thwart German plans and led to a series of violent armored battles.
The battle-hardened Wehrmacht confronted the better-equipped and better-trained US Army.
The Germans managed to re-establish a fragile defensive line but could not stop the US Army from establishing bridgeheads over the Moselle along Germany's western frontier.
