Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Osprey's second title examining the Battle of the Bulge, which was the largest and most costly battle fought by the US Army in World War II (1939-1945). When the attack in the north by 6th Panzer Army failed, Hitler switched the focus of the offensive to General Manteuffel’s 5th Panzer Army farther south. Overwhelming the green US 106th Division, German Panzers flooded towards the River Meuse. Barring their way was the crossroads town of Bastogne, reinforced at the last minute by the paratroopers of the 101st Airborne, the ‘Screaming Eagles”. The stage was set for one of the epic struggles of the war – the battle for Bastogne.

Synopsis:

The Battle of the Bulge was the largest and most costly battle fought by the US Army in World War II, and left the Wehrmacht crippled for the remainder of the war. This book offers a fresh analysis of a well-known battle, and covers the defense of Bastogne and the attempted Panzer breakout beyond the Meuse River. For an account of the fighting in the Northern Ardenns, see volume 115: Battle of the Ardennes 1944 (1) St Vith and the Northern Shoulder.
