Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Hitler and his general staff were convinced that if the Allies on the Continent were struck a shattering blow, their unity would collapse. In mid-December 1944, they planned and executed a sudden but unsuccessful counterattack westward through the Forest of Ardennes that on combat maps produced a change in the battle line forever known as the Bulge. Following the format and scope of their earlier works The Way It Was (LJ 8/91) and D-Day Normandy (LJ 4/1/94), the authors have reconstructed the sense of those uncertain days in the frozen Belgian woods. Hundreds of photos taken from American and German sources capture the world of combat from the perspective of foot soldiers and tank crewmen in all its powerful, gritty, and often gruesome reality. A valuable addition to any collection on this subject.-Mel D. Lane, Sacramento, Cal.
Roland Green
Although hardly the first in a respectable procession of materials commemorating the fiftieth anniversary of the Battle of the Bulge, this book is likely to become one of the more durable members of the march. The authors all have respectable research and writing credentials in military history, beginning with assisting in the magisterial works of the late Gordon V. Prange. They have collaborated on a clear, concise, balanced text that is inevitably somewhat cursory but does put the battle in its larger context, and have done very well in presenting a generous selection of photographs and maps. The selection of photos, in particular, avoids most of the old chestnuts of the battle and provides one of the best unofficial visual coverages of it ever seen.
