Secretly planned down to the last detail by Hitler himself, the "Battle of the Bulge" was the last major German attack on the Western Front. On December 16, 1944, thirty German divisions roared across the Allied front in an attack intended to split them in two. The battle that ensued nearly proved disastrous for the American forces and witnessed some of the harshest fighting conditions of the entire war. However, despite the Americans being under-equipped and under strength, Hitler's offensive was stopped; extinguishing any hopes of German victory. This book vividly recreates an attack remembered as the biggest and bloodiest single battle American soldiers have ever fought.
