No - certainly not ! The Ardennes Offensive of 1944 has created its own library of books ; some very good, others are just 'pot-boilers'. Despite a mundane title, this - and its companion volume ( for you will surely need both ! ) is well above average. Hans Wijers has researched the 'Northern Shoulder' of the Bulge over many years and has an intimate knowledge of the battlefield. A few years ago he collated much of this research, together with many first-hand accounts, into a series of self-published, limited print-run books which are now very hard to find. These Stackpole titles make much of this material available again in a more accessible format. I'd suggest they are not for the 'Bulge beginner' but if you have a good grounding in the subject, these detailed volumes which largely concern the march of 1st SS Panzer Division and their US adversaries are highly recommended. Only 4 stars - photo reproduction isn't great (which is a pity because, again, many of the photos are rarely seen) and the publisher has transposed some captions, but these books are a treat for the real Bulge enthusiast!
I have the original "self published" books from Hans Wijers, and I have had the pleasure of joining a tour he conducted. I have to say his knowledge and research is outstanding. His style is very readable especially with the wealth of first hand accounts he has included. With the backing of a well known publisher his works should get the readership they desreve. Highly recomended.
