BATTLE OF THE BULGE 1944: Hitlers Last Hope by Robin Cross

The Battle of the Bulge: Hitlers Last Hope is a comprehensive history of Hitlers last offensive in the West, the failure of which undoubtedly hastened the end of the war.<P>The book begins with a study of the background to the battle, and a description of events in the West leading up to the offensive. The strategic importance of Antwerp as a major port close to the Allied lines is explained, as are the factors which led Hitler to believe an attack could be successful. The book shows how, after initial German success, a bitter struggle developed between German and American forces for the key town of Bastogne. It details how the offensive lost momentum and thus any chance of success, particularly once the skies cleared and the Allies were able to bring the full weight of their air-power to bear.<P>The books authoritative text is complemented with detailed maps explaining the troop movements which took place during the battle. It also includes appendices with information on orders of battle and losses and equipment. The Battle of the Bulge: Hitlers Last Hope is a comprehensive account of the battle that saw a German attempt to relive the successes of 1940, but one that was effectively doomed from the beginning, and the consequences of that failure for Hitlers Third Reich.
