Ardennes, 1944 by Jean-Paul Pallud

Book Description

From the earliest planning stages of the German counter-offensive in the Ardennes during World War II (1939-1945), Hitler was convinced of the importance of taking the Meuse bridges. He resolved that, when his forces broke through the US lines, one special unit should be dressed in American uniforms and issued with American weapons and vehicles. In this guise they could take advantage of the surprise and shock of the breakthrough, and move forward to the Meuse bridges as if they were retreating Americans. Jean-Paul Pallud details their organisation and the fateful sequence of events that followed.

Desert War Then and Now by Jean-Paul Pallud Desert War Then and Now, Hardback (April 2013)

Following Mussolini's declaration of war in June 1940, Italy faced only those British troops based in the Middle East but as the armed confrontation escalated, other nations were drawn in. Jean Paul Pallud begins his account when the initial shots were fired at the 11th Hussars as they approached Italian outposts near Sidi Omar in Libya.

Ruckmarsch Then and Now by Jean-Paul Pallud Ruckmarsch Then and Now, Hardback (August 2006)

Following the successful landing by the Allied armies in Normandy in June 1944, Hitler's forces battled for two months to contain the bridgehead. However, his armies in the West had been defeated. This book takes up the story from that starting point, following in the footsteps of the Germans as they retreat across France.

Blitzkrieg in the West by Jean-Paul Pallud Blitzkrieg in the West, Hardback (May 1991)

This work offers an account of the 45 days, from May 10 to June 24, 1940, that made up the Battle of France. Battles great and small are described and Pallud's camera records the scenes today where 50 years ago, soldiers from six nations were locked in mortal combat of Hitler's victorious campaign.

Battle of the Bulge by Jean-Paul Pallud Battle of the Bulge, Hardback (November 1986)

Drawing on contemporary material from public and private sources as well as combatants and civilians, this book uses photographs and still frames in their historical context in order to analyse the German advance during the Battle of the Bulge.
