Hitler's Army and the Battle of the Bulge. Before dawn on 16th December
1944, German forces rolled through the frozen Ardennes in their last major
offensive in the west, thus starting the Battle of the Bulge, which would become
the US Army's bloodiest engagement of World War II. Catching the Allies by
sur-prise, the Germans made early gains, demolished the inexperienced US 106th
Infantry Division, and fought hard, but American counter-attacks -- and
tenacious resistance in towns like Bastogne -- com-bined with mounting German
casualties and fuel shortages to force the German Army into a retreat from which
it never recovered. Tables and Figures; Preface; Setting the Stage; Planning and
Preparations; The Offensive Begins; The Battle on the Northern Flank; The
Destruction of KG Peiper; The Schnee Eifel; Saint-Vith; The Siege of Bastogne;
The High Water Mark; Clearing the Bulge; Epilogue; Bibliography; Index of
Military Units.
