Product Description
The powerful German counteroffensive operation code-named “Wacht am Rhein” (Watch on the Rhine) launched in the early morning hours of December 16, 1944, would result in the greatest single extended land battle of World War II. To most Americans, the fierce series of battles fought from December 1944 through January 1945 is better known as the “Battle of the Bulge.” Almost one million soldiers would eventually take part in the fighting. Different from other histories of the Bulge, this book tells the story of this crucial campaign with first-person stories taken from the authors’ interviews of the American soldiers, both officers and enlisted personnel, who faced the massive German onslaught that threatened to turn the tide of battle in Western Europe and successfully repelled the attack with their courage and blood. Also included are stories from German veterans of the battles, including SS soldiers, who were interviewed by the authors.
From the Inside Flap
The massive German counteroffensive operation codenamed Wacht am Rhein (Watch on the Rhine) was launched in the early morning hours of December 16, 1944. To most Americans, the fierce combat that raged across the Belgian countryside from December 1944 through January 1945 is best known as “the Battle of the Bulge.” Almost one million soldiers would eventually take part in the fighting. Voices of the Bulge is told through numerous first-person accounts taken from the authors’ interviews of American officers and enlisted personnel who successfully repelled the German attack with their courage and blood. German veterans, including SS soldiers, were also interviewed by the authors after decades of silence. They give eyewitness accounts of the massive German buildup and onslaught that threatened to turn the tide of the battle in Western Europe and made it one of the most crucial battles in the history of the free world. This incredibly rare and complete perspective of events gives Voices of the Bulge a unique place among histories of this crucial campaign.
