PATTON'S GHOST CORPS By Nathan N. Prefer
In December 1944, General George Patton turned his Third Army north, taking two of his army's three corps and all of his armor to strike the massive Nazi attack through the Ardennes that became known as the Battle of the Bulge. The single corps left behind was XX Corps, the "Ghost Corps." It was immediately faced with the daunting task of defending what had been the entire Third Army front. But, instead of being told to go on the defensive, General Patton ordered it to attack -- break through Germany's Siegfried Line!
· A riveting account of General George Patton's stunning offensive thrust through the Siegfried Line launchd in December 1944 -- at the same time his Third Army was fighting the Battle of the Bulge. · NATHAN N. PREFER is the author of MacArthur's New Guinea Campaign: March-August 1944 and Vinegar Joe's War.

YA-One of the little-known battles of World War II was General George S. Patton's attack on the German Siegfried Line in January and February of 1945. Because it occurred at the time of the massive effort by the American and British forces to destroy the last major German counteroffensive in what has come to be known as the Battle of the Bulge, this campaign is all but forgotten except by those who were there. Fought in subzero temperatures and often in blinding snowstorms, the campaign was daunting and the courage displayed by the soldiers certainly equaled that of their comrades in the Bulge. Prefer uses numerous interviews, official histories, and after-action reports to bring alive the numerous firefights and bloody assaults that marked the campaign, while detailed maps make it easy for readers to follow the ebb and flow of the action. This book will appeal most to history buffs and it will fill a gap in World War II collections.
