Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is definitely in my top 3 of WWII books and I've read a few. The narrative is very fluid making descriptions of the many attacks, skirmishes and smaller battles blend into one another in an easy to follow manner. I especially liked the way it gave the situation from both sides if not always exactly unbiased. It was also good to see the infantry divisions on the line, at the outset of the battle, getting the recognition they deserve and not being portrayed as green troops who folded at the first sign of a panzer. Great book written by a man who was there with the detail and respect owed to all who fought in the Bulge.

Format: Paperback
Charles MacDonald provides a well written comprehensive review of the Battle of the Bulge. Plenty of illustrative maps are used throughout to aid the reader through the narrative. The historical description is well balanced through the inclusion of personal accounts from the battles and provides the book with a real life element that lifts the narrative beyond a simply dry historical chronology.

Setting the scene in the early chapters he then proceeds to clearly describe the events. His chosen style explains the battle by following each sector of the battle in turn, rather then the whole on a day by day basis. The book thus provides a clear narrative of what was happening in each sector as a chain rather then the activity across the whole on a day by day basis.

This is a well researched, serious historical work and highly recommended for anyone wishing to discover the detail about this period of the Second World War.
