West Wall: The Battle for Hitler's Siegfried Line - Charles Whiting

Spellmount, 1999, Hardback in Dustwrapper..
Condition: Very Good - in Very Good DJ. DJ slightly ruffled at the edges. Pages very gently age-tanned at the margins.

Illustrated with B&W photographs and maps. From the cover: “The Battle for the Siegfried Line was not only the most important of the 1944-45 campaign against Germany, it was to prove the key battle in the entire war in the west. It raged for six, long, bloody months along a front of 350 miles, and cost over a quarter of a million British, American, Canadian and French casualties. Constructed in the utmost secrecy and at enormous cost, and dismissed by many as a ‘white elephant’, the ‘Great Wall of Germany’ very nearly lived up to the Fuhrer’s expectations, and is judged to have prolonged the war in Europe by six months.”
