--CLEARANCE SALE -- ORIGINAL HARD COVER EDITIONS AT SOFTCOVER PRICING --
In eight months, 20 major attempts were made to breach the 'Fatherland' -- beginning with the disastrous Allied defeat at Arnhem--only to be repulsed by an exhausted but resilient Wehrmacht. In the end, the goal was finally achieved but at the staggering cost of thousands of British and American lives. From the foxhole to the command tent, here is an in-depth and personal account of the last great Allied assault of WWII.
The story of the last great assault of World War II, full of new details and you-are-there stories of the twenty major efforts made to vault the moat of Hitler's Reich between September 1944, and April 1945, when the goal was achieved.
Units covered: American: First Army, Third Army, Seventh Army, Ninth Army. Also British, Canadian, French and German forces.
