Summary
"On December, 16, 1944, Hitler launched his last gamble in the snow-covered forests and gorges of the Ardennes. He believed he could split the Allies by driving all the way to Antwerp, then force the Canadians and the British out of the war. Although his generals were doubtful of success, younger officers and NCOs were desperate to believe that their homes and families could be saved from the vengeful Red Army approaching from the east. Many were exultant at the prospect of striking back. The Ardennes offensive, with more than a million men involved, became the greatest battle of the war in western Europe."--Book jacket
Summary
The #1 internationally best-selling author of D-Day reconstructs the Battle of the Bulge in riveting detail to discuss the surprise counteroffensive by German forces, the numerous casualties on both sides and the strategies that enabled an Allied victory
