The Battle of the Bulge - when Hitler sent his troops crashing through the Ardennes to split the Allies - is WWII's best-known engagement on the Western Front. This book is an illustrated history of that great battle. It is published to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the battle that thwarted Hitler's final gamble. Many of the hundreds of photographs are drawn from German archives. Donald M. Goldstein and Katherine V. Dillon are the co-authors of "God's Samurai" (with the late Gordon W. Prange), "At Dawn We Slept", "Miracle at Midway", "December 7, 1941", "Pearl Harbour: The Verdict of History" and "Target Tokyo". J. Michael Wenger also collaborated with them on "The Way It Was" and "D-Day Normandy".

Hitler and his general staff were convinced that if the Allies on the Continent were struck a shattering blow, their unity would collapse. In mid-December 1944, they planned and executed a sudden but unsuccessful counterattack westward through the Forest of Ardennes that on combat maps produced a change in the battle line forever known as the Bulge. Following the format and scope of their earlier works The Way It Was (LJ 8/91) and D-Day Normandy (LJ 4/1/94), the authors have reconstructed the sense of those uncertain days in the frozen Belgian woods. Hundreds of photos taken from American and German sources capture the world of combat from the perspective of foot soldiers and tank crewmen in all its powerful, gritty, and often gruesome reality. A valuable addition to any collection on this subject.
