At last, here is a book that tells the full story of the turning point in World War II's Battle of the Bulge--the story of five crucial days in which small groups of American soldiers, some outnumbered ten to one, slowed the German advance and allowed the Belgian town of Bastogne to be reinforced. "Alamo in the Ardennes" provides a compelling, day-by-day account of this pivotal moment in America's greatest war.
