On the 16th of December, 1944, in the frozen forests of the Ardennes, the German army attacked American Allied forces, launching a final bid to turn the tide of World War II. Thus began the long, hard slog of a battle that was nicknamed by the media as the Battle of the Bulge. Lasting more than a month, it led to tens of thousands of casualties. Sir Winston Churchill called it "the greatest American battle of the war and . . . an ever-famous American victory." Atkinson skillfully guides his audience through the attacks and counterattacks, the advances and retreats of this terrible bloodbath. Whether history buffs or newcomers to the topic, young readers will appreciate the author's clear and accessible prose, as well as the many fascinating facts, photographs, and statistics.

A historical exploration of World War II's Battle of the Bulge from Pulitzer Prizewinner and New York Times–bestselling author Rick Atkinson.

This thoroughly-researched and documented book can be worked into multiple aspects of the common core curriculum.

About the Author:

Rick Atkinson is the bestselling author of An Army at Dawn (winner of the Pulitzer Prize for history), The Day of Battle, and The Guns at Last Light, among others. His many other awards include a Pulitzer Prize for journalism, the George Polk Award, and the Pritzker Military Library Literature Award. A former staff writer and senior editor at The Washington Post, he lives in Washington, D.C.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 9 Up—Following D-Day: The Invasion of Normandy, 1944 (Holt, 2014), the first YA adaptation from Atkinson's adult The Guns at Last Light (Picador, 2014), this title describes the planning, implementation, and horrors of the Battle of the Bulge. The book begins late in the war, providing comprehensive coverage of Hitler's bold final offensive, which caught the Allies by surprise, and describing the fierce battle action, largely fought by American defenders in the frozen Ardennes. The style is similar to that of D-Day, mixing details about plans, battles, terrain, and weather with excerpts from primary source accounts that personalize the battle and demonstrate how the reactions of both sides shaped the action. Unlike D-Day, which emphasizes the successful planning and execution of the Normandy invasion, this volume focuses on how the shortages and stresses of a long war and severe winter weather exacerbated weaknesses and missteps on both sides, increased the difficulties of command and combat, and took a terrible human toll on the fighting forces of both Allies and Germans. The format is similar to that of the first book, with useful area and battle maps, captioned period photos, and an appendix with descriptions of winter fighting, equipment, and weapons. Tim McNeese's Battle of the Bulge (Chelsea House, 2004) covers much of the same material, but Atkinson's offering is better illustrated and more in-depth. VERDICT Because of the high level of battle detail and military jargon, this title isn't quite as readable as D-Day. However, it's a solid choice for high school reports and military buffs.—Mary Mueller, Rolla Public Schools, MO
