THE BATTLE OF THE BULGE: DEFINITIVE ACCOUNT by MACDONALD 1ST 1984 H/B

The Battle of the Bulge: The Definitive Account by Charles MacDonald - 1984 . FIRST EDITION published by Weidenfeld & Nicolson, London

Drawing on his unique investigations and access to documents, the author makes startling new disclosures. He uses previously secret ULTRA and MAGIC intercepts to reveal that Allied intelligence officers did have sufficient information to anticipate a big German offensive but, incredibly, they failed to do so. Through lucid personal accounts he has established that, however dramatic the fight for Bastogne, the most critical struggle occurred near Monschau, where a sparcely augmented single US infantry division halted the Sixth Panzer Army. Other new material includes interviews with survivors of the infamous Malmedy massacre and German commanders and foot -soldiers, as well as the experiences of civilians trapped by the Battle. He has investigated a mass of new information, much of it hitherto unknown or unpublished. His book blends a comprehensive interpretative account of the military campaign with the gripping story of what the people involved actually felt and experienced. B&w photos.
