Bastogne will live forever in the annals of American military history. From the resounding “Nuts,” in response to the German demand for surrender, to the breaking of the siege by Patton’s Third Army—brilliantly disengaged from its positions on the Saar, wheeled 90 degrees and marched northwards faster than any thought possible—the defense of Bastogne and victory in the Ardennes was one of the greatest feats of American arms in the European Theater.
This title in the Past & Present series looks at the encirclement, siege, and relief with then and now photographs; specially commissioned aerial photos, and a wealth of detail.
"a good introduction to what happened in the Ardennes back in that winter of 1944 and provided with lots of illustrations which will be such a useful reference for you if you want to visit the area for yourself. As a visitor myself, I can only recommend it, as there is good food, beautiful countryside and plenty of history to be found" ~Military Modelling
