Operation Nordwind is one of the lesser known campaigns of World War II (1939-1945), yet one of the more intriguing. Largely overshadowed by the Battle of the Bulge further north, Nordwind was the last great operation by the Waffen-SS Panzer divisions in the west, and the last time the Wehrmacht was on the offensive in the West. The campaign also highlights the difficulties of inter-Allied cooperation between the Americans and the French. This campaign has been extensively treated in German and French accounts, but is not well covered in English.

About the Author:

Steven J. Zaloga received his BA in history from Union College and his MA from Columbia University. He has worked as an analyst in the aerospace industry for over two decades, covering missile systems and the international arms trade, and has served with the Institute for Defense Analyses, a federal think-tank. He is the author of numerous books on military technology and military history, with an accent on the US Army in World War II as well as Russia and the former Soviet Union. The author lives in Abingdon, Maryland. The author lives in Abingdon, MD.

Review:

“Zaloga does an excellent job of recounting not only how the battle progressed, but why it played out as it did. He spends considerable space analyzing the depleted state of the German Army at the end of 1944, and how political-infighting within the Reich further undermined the capabilities it still had ... This is an excellent and concise study on a little known yet important campaign. Find room for it on your shelf.” ―Andrew Hind, World at War (April/May 2011)

“What's really going to grab the attention of toy soldier collectors, modelers and wargamers' is the more than 50 mostly black-and-white photos drawn from the author's personal collection, U.S. Signal Corps files, and the U.S. National Archives and Records Administration ... Hobbyists can find lots of inspirations in this highly recommended book about Hitler's little-known but intriguing last offensive.” ―Toy Soldier & Model Figure
