Product Description

Synopsis

On December 16, 1944, Hitler's last great offensive of World War II commenced, pushing through the Ardennes in an attempt to reach the Meuse River and, beyond it, the Allies' supply ports. Equipped with Tiger tanks, Kampfgruppe Peiper, a Waffen SS unit and Germany's most powerful battle group, spearheaded the offensive but failed to reach the Meuse. Using a wide variety of sources, the authors tell the story of Kampfgruppe Peiper in unprecedented detail, from the first day of the invasion through the group's retreat on Christmas Day.

If you don't know very much about Kampfgruppe Peiper or the battle of the bulge then this book is a great starting point.
Even if you know more than the average person then this will still improve your understanding from the German perspective of that famous battle.
Not essential reading and most of the information is available in other publications,but the pictures and illustrations alone make it a good buy for the relatively low cost.

The more books on the Ardennes offensive that you read the more you realise that there is only a limited number of sources on which they are based. This is inevitable considering the confused nature of the battle but it does create a feeling of deja-vu in the reader.

That's not to say that this isn't a good book - if you are new to the story of Kampfgruppe Peiper it is a very good introduction but if you've read The Devils Adjutant by Michael Reynolds then you've pretty much read this one. That said, this is a much easier read than Reynolds and doesn't have any of his tiresome pooh-poohing of eyewitness accounts and you don't need a large scale map to follow the action.

As with all the Stackpole books I've seen, the large area maps are atrocious but the detailed outline maps are very good but should have a page each instead of cramming them in with the text.

I particularly liked the battlefield tour guide at the back which, to a man who wasted an hour repeatedly driving past a dog rescue centre near Schoppen trying to follow Cavanaghs Tour of the Bulge Battlefield, seemed far, far simpler (the air in my car is still blue from all the swearing)

If you like this and think you might like to buy "Kampfgruppe Peiper - The Race to the Meuse" by the same authors I would suggest you save your money as it's the same book. Grrr!

Having recently been on a battle of the bulge trip, I found the book fascinating and interesting read after actually visiting the places mentioned. I have several others in my collection and intend to add to the collection in the future.

Well worth the cost and am looking forward to reading through it, quick delivery, worth every penny, thank you Amazon
