- World War II
Breaking the Bulge
Were German army deficiencies to blame for the failure of the German counteroffensive in the Ardennes? It is true that the three armies regrouped for the campaign were in mediocre condition, and that a shortage of automotive equipment, tanks, and artillery hampered their progress. But more than anything, it was the speed of the Allied reaction to the attack that turned the tide.
This illustrated volume charts the campaign through over 100 photographs and 24 color profiles that describe its key events. Ultimately, it reveals that, although the Allies pushed the Germans back, they failed to turn the victory into a rout, missing an opportunity to cross the Siegfried line and the Rhine on the heels of the Germans and potentially shorten the war.
