Overview

• One of World War II's most famous battles recounted from the German point of view • Covers Otto Skorzeny, Kampfgruppe Peiper, the siege of Bastogne, and more • Includes the story of the hard-hit U.S. 106th Infantry Division and based on unpublished primary sources, including after-action reports and soldiers' memoirs Before dawn on December 16, 1944, German forces rolled through the icy Ardennes in their last major offensive on the Western Front. Catching the Allies--predominantly Americans, in what they believed was a "quiet" sector--by surprise, the Germans made early gains, but Allied counterattacks combined with German fuel shortages and mounting casualties forced the German Army into a retreat from which it never recovered.
