Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
YA-One of the little-known battles of World War II was General George S. Patton's attack on the German Siegfried Line in January and February of 1945. Because it occurred at the time of the massive effort by the American and British forces to destroy the last major German counteroffensive in what has come to be known as the Battle of the Bulge, this campaign is all but forgotten except by those who were there. Fought in subzero temperatures and often in blinding snowstorms, the campaign was daunting and the courage displayed by the soldiers certainly equaled that of their comrades in the Bulge. Prefer uses numerous interviews, official histories, and after-action reports to bring alive the numerous firefights and bloody assaults that marked the campaign, while detailed maps make it easy for readers to follow the ebb and flow of the action. This book will appeal most to history buffs and it will fill a gap in World War II collections.-Robert Burnham, R. E. Lee High School, Springfield, VA
