The 'Battle of the Bulge' was the last major German offensive in the West. Three armies attacked through the Ardennes, the weakest point in the American lines - and almost broke through. This book describes the planning of the attack and the course of events, including the defence of Bastogne and the heroic delaying actions fought by GIs supposed to be in a 'quiet' sector of the front. It was a German giant effort to assemble Three armies and such large cuantities of armor, for this major offensive in the west ,(all to big surprise for the allies), all these, in one of the most caotic times for the Whermacht -in the fall of 1944. In spite of serious American disadvantages Hitler's offensive was stopped. And after this battle, there would be no respite for the Germans, the end of the war now, was just a question of time. This book, as usual with the Campaign series, analyse commanders, the planing, equipments and the armies, before and during the battle and it tells the story from both sides, attacker and defender. Full color 3-D ‘bird’s-eye-views’, battle scenes, soldiers or equipment drawings and maps as well as black and white photographs that support's the text.
