Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Poughkeepsie Journal, 9/4/11
“A riveting account.”

Kirkus Reviews (starred review), 10/15/11
“A sharply focused look at a grisly 1944 incident, the massacre of more than 80 American prisoners outside Malmédy, Belgium. Assembling a massive amount of data (the back matter alone consumes more than 120 pages), the author views the tragedy from the perspectives of survivors, the Germans and the Belgian civilians, some of whom aided the wounded, some of whom did not…Comprehensive, definitive, grim and gripping.”

WWII History magazine, Winter 2011
“[A] riveting account.”

Roanoke Times, 1/1/12Fatal Crossroads manages to bridge the often uncomfortable terrain between in-depth details tailored for historians and brilliant, readable narratives appealing to lay readers…Parker not only sheds light on an oft-forgotten portion of the American experience in World War II, he rigorously dissects it, providing a benchmark for any future studies of the Malmedy massacre.”

Military Review, 12/1/12
Fatal Crossroads provides a valuable analysis of the Malmedy Massacre through firsthand accounts of its victims, perpetrators, and observers. It provides a unique, realistic awareness of wartime atrocities.”
