Inhaltsangabe: Decision at St Vith tells the devastating story of how a quarter of a million of Hitler's men, 200,000 pieces of artillery and 980 tanks launched themselves at the inexperienced and unprepared US troops who were resting in the forests of the Ardennes.
The young soldiers of the US 106th (Golden Lion) Division were huddled in their foxholes trying to sleep. They had never been in battle and were told they occupied a "rest sector" on the front. We read of men who fought until they died and others who quickly surrendered, of officers relieved of command and orders that bore no relation to reality. For this was the night when the full might of Hitler's armies attacked in the first shattering blow of the Battle of the Bulge.
This excellent account brings home in vivid detail the brutalities of this last desperate attack by the Germans.?
Über den Autor: Charles Whiting is Britain's most prolific military writer with over 250 books to his credit. He saw active service in the Second World War, serving in an armoured reconnaissance regiment attached to both the U.S. and British armies. He is therefore able to write with the insight and authority of someone who, as a combat soldier, actually experienced the horrors of World War II.
