Well Up To Standard,
This review is from: Duel in the Mist 3: The Leibstandarte During the Ardennes Offensive (Hardcover)
If you have the first two volumes, you will know what to expect. A highly detailed, step-by-step account of the actions of KG Peiper and their opponents during the Ardennes Offensive.This volume covers events at La Gleize and Stoumont, and is particularly good at coverage of the fighting between KG Hansen and the 82nd Airborne around Trois Ponts ; a dramatic story which most other 'Bulge' books skim over in a few sentences - if they mention it at all.
Sadly, this volume lacks the colour profiles featured in the previous two ( I almost marked it down to 4 stars ) but one has to applaud the efforts authors and publisher. As I've said before, this series is not for the general reader - but if you have a deep interest in the Ardennes Offensive this is simply essential reading, and a work which contains a wealth of in-depth research which will be returned to again and again.
I can hardly wait for Vol. 4 !
