About this Product

At 5.30am on 16 December 1944, Gen Courteney Hodges' VII and VIII Corps faced the gravest crisis to confront the Allies since D-Day. US First Army bore the brunt of it, as Von Manteuffel's V Panzer Armee pushed the 'bulge' deeper into Allied territory. 106th Infantry Division, defending the frontline in the Schnee Eiffel, suffered terribly. Miraculously, 28th Infantry Division stalled the German drive, just in time for reinforcements, in the shape of 101st Airborne, to be rushed to the key road junction of Bastogne. The surrounded defenders now faced a formidable siege.

Biographical Note

With a father and grandfather who served with distinction in two World Wars, Bruce Quarrie grew up with a fascination for military history. He wrote his first book in 1974 and since then he has had an average of two books published every year in addition to more than a dozen film scripts and, most recently, contributions to CD-ROM programmes. Bruce's Encyclopaedia of the German Army was even translated and published in German.
