Thanks for the review, although good I don't believe the books add anything to what has already been published.

Just to add, the battle was not a"true American battle". Yes the US army had approximately 450,000 men engaged toward the end but the British and Canadians had 55,000 engaged from the beginning. It was the British and Canadians who stopped the German advance from crossing the Meuse. Had the Germans gained this objective the battle of the Ardennes could have prolonged the war much further. A lot of good men on both sides died and the all should be remembered
