In this gripping, unusual volume, insight into the Battle of the Bulge is told through firsthand accounts by German officers. The Battle of the Bulge, a major German offensive lasting from December 1945 to January 1945, caught the Allied forces off guard in Belgium, France, and Luxembourg and had devastating consequences for both sides. There were eighty-nine thousand Americans casualties and between eighty thousand and one hundred thousand German ones. It was the largest and bloodiest battle fought by the Americans during Second World War and yet, in the end, an Allied victory. There are Western accounts of the battle, but very little has been told from the German perspective. In Hitler's Ardennes Offensive, acclaimed military historian Danny S. Parker has compiled together accounts by German officials who reveal how they perceived the battle, how they believe Adolf Hitler perceived it, and what, in their opinion, went wrong.
