Battle of the Bulge: St Vith US 106 Infantry Division - Michael TolhurstLeo Cooper, 1999, Hardback ..
Condition: Good. A reasonable reading copy only. Would be Very Good were it not for the notable knock to the head of the spine. Text bright and tight.
Illustrated with B&W photographs. From the introduction: “The purpose of this book is not to confuse the reader with the many complexities arising from the ‘Battle of the Bulge’ (December 1944 – January 1945), nor get involved with the politics or controversial decisions made, but to give an idea, basically, how the battle came about and, because of the vastness of the battleground area, to concentrate on one portion of it. The battle was the biggest pitched engagement of the Western Front, involving over one million men. It was Hitler’s last desperate gamble and was probably one of the most astonishing episodes of World War II, also the most controversial. It shook the Western Alliance, incredible confusion reigned, and it finally broke the Germans.”
