En stock

In December 1944, almost at the end of the Second World War, Hitler caught the whole world unawares by launching a powerful offensive in the Ardennes sector. The resulting battle, called the Battle of the Bulge, was one of the United States’ bloodiest pages of history.

In this book, Christer Bergström, a well-known Swedish expert on the Second World War, includes spectacular unpublished photos of the winter offensive. The Allies’ efforts to conceal the true American losses, the stories the Ger- man generals invented after the war, the nume- rous tanks “forgotten” during the Battle of the Bulge and the Germans’ exceptional preparation for the offensive – all is revealed in this very avant-garde book. The author has done meticulous research work, met veterans, travelled and studied the areas for years. The understanding of the Battle of the Bulge is transformed by this book.

With 400 photos, which of many are unpublished, numerous detailed maps and tank and plane profiles by Claes Sundin, this is a definitive reference book on the subject.
