Summary

Summary

In this reprinted work, a leading military historian provides an analysis of the strategic and political complexities of the Battle of the Bulge. Intended to split the Allied armies, disrupt supply lines and fatally divide their political leadership the German counter-attack came dangerously close to fulfilling its objectives. However, it was Hitler's last desperate gamble in the West and defeat inevitably followed its failure.
