About this Product

When Adolf Hitler conceived his counter-offensive in the west in the autumn of 1944, he placed his reliance on two SS-Panzer Korps to break through in the northern sector. This failed dismally and the Schwerpunkt, or axis, of the assault was switched to the central sector, where General Hasso von Manteuffel's V Panzer Armee was fairly scything through the Allied lines. 2 Panzer Division came within sight of the River Meuse, the first objective. The Americans were forced to evacuate St Vith and Bastogne was besieged.

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. After editing the monthly magazine Military Illustrated for a number of years, he is now established as a full-time writer. Bruce's Encyclopaedia of the German Army was even translated and published in German.
