Publisher's Summary

At last, here is a book that tells the full story of the turning point in World War II's Battle of the Bulge - the story of five crucial days in which small groups of American soldiers, some outnumbered 10 to 1, slowed the German advance and allowed the Belgian town of Bastogne to be reinforced. Alamo in the Ardennes provides a compelling, day-by-day account of this pivotal moment in America's greatest war.

Great balance of overall strategy and big picture overview but lots of added personal individual soldier memories which really add to the perspective. Well worth buying if your interested in the campaign right up to the attack on Bastogne ( which it does not cover, just the fighting before )
