Through collections of artifacts, photos, letters and testimonies, this book takes a fresh and immersive look at the day-to-day conditions of the American soldiers in the Ardennes, and at the circumstances that drew them there from a world away.

A G.I. in the Ardennes focuses on the human experience during wartime. What was life like for a regular American soldier who gave his life to combat fascism?

By immersing himself in historical documents, hundreds of letters and several interviews from that period of time, Denis Hambucken managed to accurately reconstruct the daily life of an American soldier in impressive detail. The author takes a closer look at the weapons, equipment and personal belongings of the soldiers who fought at the Western front, while sharing numerous personal anecdotes and moving stories.
