"The Battle of the Bulge fought in the winter of 1944 – 45 is one of the most well-known actions of World War II. It was the last major Nazi offensive against the Allies, masterminded and overseen by Hitler himself. It was the largest and most costly battle fought by the US Army in World War II. The author provides a full account of the campaign strategy; the American and German forces and command; their equipment and tanks; plus a detailed account of the fighting." -www.mataka.org, October 2010
"In workman-like prose, without attempting to convey the terror and excitement of battle, Zaloga analyzes both Allied and German strategies, leadership, squabbles among generals, problems in supplies and terrain, and other factors leading up to and culminating in the defeat of German forces by the Allies in the decisive Battle of the Bulge." - Zara Raab, Sacramento Book Review
