Click to EnlargeBATTLE OF THE BULGE - Images of War Series. by A. Rawson. Hitler's desperate last throw during the depths of winter 1944/45 came perilously close to being a major disaster for the Allies when launched against American forces in the Ardennes sector. The Ardennes sector was not only the weakest part of the front but was also the least likely axis of attack due to the mountainous terrain and the harsh winter weather.

The German offensive through the Ardennes fell on the Americans and caught them totally by surprise. Unaccustomed to setbacks, the situation was for a time extremely serious and in some areas panic set in and events went out of control. It was only after the most bitter fighting and massive reinforcement that the rot was stopped.

In this book the drama of those worrying weeks is captured in 250 superb photographs which vividly portray the horror of war under the most desperate conditions.
