Follow every detail of Patton's actions during Germany's famous WWII counteroffensive. From the attacks of the 5th and 6th Panzer Armies at Schnee Eifel and St. Vith to the 3rd Army offensive that forced the Rhine River, the authors capture all of the critical actions of both Allied and German troops, focusing on the famous general who led the American forces.

Having trumped Rommel in North Africa, played a reluctant supporting role to Montgomery in Italy, and fought across France after D-Day, General George S. Patton and his Third Army ran up against a desperate German counter-offensive at the Battle of the Bulge in the bitter cold of December 1944. From the panzer attacks in the Belgian forests to the Third Army's determined drive to the Rhine, the authors explain each facet of the critical battle in detail, while explicating the strategies, opinions, and thoughts of the mercurial military genius. The text is supported with a wealth of photography from before, during and after the battle, much of it previously unpublished. An excellent resource for Patton buffs and neophyte military historians alike.
