Lost Battalions: Going for Broke in the Vosges, Autumn 1944 Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Lost Battalions is a remarkable story of men in combat. Two battalions, one German, one American, find themselves surrounded, deep behind enemy lines in late 1944.

The 1st Battalion, 141st Infantry ("Alamo Reigment"), had been cut off for six days and food, water, and ammunition were running out. Sent to rescue the "Texans" were the Japanese-American Nisei of the famed "Go For Broke" 100/442d Regimental Combat Team. At virtually the same time, only five miles away, a similar drama unfolded as the Wehrmacht's 201st Mountain Battalion attempted an equally desperate rescue of its sister unit, the 202d Mountain Battalion.

The weather was abysmal, the terrain virtually impassable. Some generals lost their sons there; other generals lost only their honor. Told by the soldiers, American and German, from both sides, Lost Battalions is an unforgettable account of courage, honor, and humanity.

Synopsis:

The story of two World War II battalions--one German, one American--each cut off behind enemy lines in the same forest at the same time, and the heroic efforts to save them--Infantry Magazine
