Patton's Ghost Corpsby Nathan N. Prefer, Lathan N. Prefer
In December 1944, General George Patton turned his Third Army north, taking two of his army's three corps and all of his armor to strike the massive Nazi attack through the Ardennes that became known as the Battle of the Bulge. The single corps left behind was XX Corps, the "Ghost Corps." It was immediately faced with the daunting task of defending what had been the entire Third Army front. But, instead of being told to go on the defensive, General Patton ordered it to attack -- break through Germany's Siegfried Line!
A riveting account of General George Patton's stunning offensive thrust through the Siegfried Line launchd in December 1944 -- at the same time his Third Army was fighting the Battle of the Bulge.
