Charles Whiting's account of the Allied advance into Nazi Germany focuses on the months from September of 1944, when the Allies attacked the "West Wall" defending the western border of Germany, to the Allied crossing of the Rhine in March, 1945. Whiting describes the German counterattack in December that turned into the devastating Battle of the Bulge, and the Battle of the Rhineland that followed as the Allies pressed into Germany. Generals Eisenhower, Patton, and Montgomery take center stage in this book, which also draws from the accounts of officers and enlisted men as they fought their way through Europe's war-torn landscape.
