Fought during the frigid winter of 1944-45, the Battle of the Bulge still ranks as the single largest battle ever waged by the US Army. It was also a test: Could this conscript ground force from the Allies defeat the best remaining men and machines that Nazi Germany could produce? In The Battle of the Bulge artist Wayne Vansant takes you into the frozen foxholes, haunting forests and devastated villages of the Ardennes in Belgium and Luxembourg. Almost one million soldiers fought in the battle, at the end of which Winston Churchill stated in the House of Commons that the Battle of the Bulge was ‘undoubtedly the greatest American battle of the war and will, I believe, be regarded as an ever famous American victory'. The Battle of the Bulge is a true story of American triumph.

By late 1944 the Allies were poised to smash the Siegfried Line and break into Germany. Supply lines were shorter thanks to the port of Antwerp. Arnhem aside, there had been a long run of victories and there was no intelligence even from ULTRA to suggest a German counter-offensive.So the major December attack through the mountainous Ardennes by massed Panzers and infantry took the Allies totally by surprise. Fog and low cloud negated the Allies' air supremacy, English-speaking German commandos in captured jeeps created panic and withdrawal of US forces became a near rout with morale all but broken.For ten days the situation worsened and Antwerp was seriously threatened and 21st Army Group in danger of being cut off.Clear skies for the Thunderbolts and coherent counter-attacks by rapidly deployed reinforcements turned the tide in the nick of time, so preventing a catastrophic defeat for the Allies.All this and more is graphically narrated in this fine study of a pivotal battle, that so nearly changed the course of war.

The U.S. Army's bloodiest battle of World War II From-the-foxhole stories of American soldiers in combat Based on official U.S. Army documents and after-action reports Most accounts of the Battle of the Bulge focus on Bastogne, but the Germans' main thrust actually occurred to the north, where Sepp Dietrich's Sixth SS Panzer Army stormed through the Losheim Gap. In this region of thick forests and tiny villages, U.S. troops halted the best of the German war machine, including the 12th SS Panzer and the 3rd Fallschirmjäger Divisions.

The Battle of the Bulge raises many questions which, until now, have not been adequately answered: How did the major tank types perform during the battle? What were the specific 'lessons learned' from the combat? And did these lessons result in changes to tanks in the subsequent months? Offering detailed answers to these questions, and many more, this book provides a survey of the principal tank and tank-equivalents (such as tank destroyers and Jagdpanzers) that took part in the Ardennes Campaign of December 1944–January 1945. Beginning with a basic overview of the campaign, accompanied by an order of battle of the major armoured units, it examines the opposing forces, covering the organization of the two tank forces to explain how they were deployed. Author Steven Zaloga also scrutinises the technical balance between the opposing sides, comparing armour, mobility and firepower as well as other important factors such as reliability, crew situational awareness, and tank layout/efficiency. Full of specially commissioned and highly accurate artwork plates of the tanks themselves, as well as fascinating technical data based on cutting-edge research, this title is the definitive guide to tank warfare in the Battle of the Bulge.

When German forces went on the offensive against a thin American front in the Ardennes region, their goals were quite lofty. After four weeks of fighting, they had done little more than create a bulge in the American line and dwindle their own forces.

"Martin King tells the human side of the story of the Battle of the Bulge better than anyone." Commander Jeffrey Barta, US Navy (retired) "I have walked the battlefields with Martin King, who has traversed them countless times with veterans of the Bulge. No one knows this story like Martin, and no one can tell it quite the way he does." Rick Beyer, New York Times bestselling author of The Ghost Army of World War II The vortex of a tornado is a vacuum, and that is where we were, in the centre of a storm of armour and artillery pushing forward into the Ardennes. - John Hillard Dunn, 106th Division, US Army The Battle of the Bulge was the largest land engagement of World War II. The German counter-attack, spearheaded by three Panzer armies, found the Allies unprepared and ill-equipped.

Written by one of the world's leading experts on the subject, this account provides an essential introduction to the events of winter 1944-5 and to the many soldiers who risked their lives in defence of freedom. Drawing on personal interviews, extensive research, and an unparalleled knowledge of the region, Martin King explores one of the most important battles of World War II.

This is the story of Harry F. Martin, Jr. who fought in the Battle of the Bulge in World War II. In his own words: We were going to a quiet sector on the front lines. This was an area where combat troops were sent to rest and green troops like us were sent to gradually break in. The Germans did the same thing in this sector. The Americans had gone into combat at the Normandy invasion on June 6, 1944 and fought their way just inside Germany, securing a foothold in the Siegfried Line in the Ardennes Forest. When our total offensive slowed down in September, the Ardennes Line remained stable up to the present time. There had been no real activity in this area for nearly three months. We were greatly relieved that we were not going directly into combat. Parts of Harry Martin's story have been used by three other authors in their books about the Battle of the Bulge and his story has been told in numerous magazines and newspapers. This book is his entire story, which is now being made available to the public for the first time.

I may be one of the few remaining veterans of World War II who can write a book which tells the story of the Battle of the Bulge, World War II, and the years of the Great Depression preceding it from personal, first hand experience. After my youth as a first-generation American in Brooklyn, NY, I was proud to serve as a combat medic with the First Infantry Division, the Big Red One. This personal memoir was written by a person who is actually unknown, and has not gained the fame of celebrity. My feeling is that self-esteem is reward enough for my accomplishments. A Purple Heart, The Bronze Star, and The Combat Medic Badge are my Tony, Emmy, and Oscar. Enjoy my story, both quintessential of the times and full of unique experiences, as I take you through my childhood during the Great Depression through my service to my country during World War II.

Cut Off Behind Enemy Lines In The Battle Of The Bulge With Two Small Children Ernest Hemingway And Other Assorted Misanthropes

The story of a skirt-chasing 23 year old GI reporter for Yank magazine who haplessly stumbles right into the opening hours of the Battle of the Bulge and results in an extraordiary odyssey to save the lives of two orphaned Jewish children, 6-year old Lisa and her 7 year old brother Friedrich. It's just over a week before Christmas, 1944. The German army, thought to be nearly "kaput", has just opened the surprisingly brutal Ardennes offensive - smashing through lightly held American lines in the countryside of Belgium. Davidson, having just completed a romantic interlude in Brussels, smells a story and jumps in his Jeep - the "Lootwagen" - which he keps well stocked with Nylons, Liquor and Cigarettes - neccesary currency for a young reporter in search of the "action". Some of the dates and places don't quite seem to jibe with historical fact, but Davidson's self-deprecating humor overrides concerns over historic accuracy of the account. There's a little of everything - heroic soldiers, deserters, the Belgian resistance, black marketeers, and a drunken, clueless Ernest Hemingway.

In December 1944, the German Army launched an attack through the Ardennes Forest in Belgium that aimed to seize the port of Antwerp and cut the Allied supply lines, hoping to force the Western Allies either to delay their advance on Berlin, or even agree a peace settlement. The Battle of the Bulge is a comprehensive history of Hitler’s last offensive in the West, the failure of which undoubtedly hastened the end of World War II. The book begins with a study of the background to the battle, and a description of events in the West leading up to the offensive, including the Allied landings in Normandy on D-Day and Operation Market Garden. The lack of Allied readiness for a surprise attack and the tactics used by Otto Skorzeny's commandos are covered in depth. After initial success, the Germans became bogged down in a siege of the crucial communications hub at Bastogne which was defended by the 101st Airborne Division and other scratch US forces. The book describes how the attack lost vital momentum that was compounded when the weather cleared by the superiority of Allied airpower, and the final chapter discusses the far-reaching implications of the battle for the Germans and the Allies. The book’s authoritative text is complemented with appendices with information on orders of battle, losses and equipment. [This is a text-only ebook edition.]
