From the Back Cover:

THE ALLIES HAD BROKEN OUT ACROSS FRANCE.

HITLER ORDERED A DESPERATE COUNTERATTACK.

THE ARDENNES WOULD RUN WITH BLOOD...

A furious all-or-nothing German winter counterattack caught the Allies by surprise. Their lines shattered, American soldiers fought with guns and guts and bayonets to slow down the onslaught; fought to separate their comrades from Germans dressed in U.S. uniforms; fought to survive the horrors of such battle sites as Baraque de Fraiture, Elsenborn Ridge, or the infamous Malmedy massacre of unarmed POWs. When it was over, the Allies had suffered 81,000 casualties; the Germans, 125,000.

This extraordinary chronicle sweeps us into the most cataclysmic World War II land battle -- from tank duels to hand-to-hand combat and guerilla warfare. In the words of the flesh-and-blood men who fought it, this is the definitive portrait of the chaos, the terror, and the acts of courage and carnage that was the Bulge.
