Reviews

A heartbreaking, day-by-day account - beautifully written - of the small unit action in the forest." -Army History

"One of the finest case studies of modern infantry combat in any language." -Dennis Showalter, author of Tannenburg: Clash of Empires

"Rush successfully marries combat analysis with social history to provide a new assessment of the American infantry units that battled the Wehrmacht from the beaches of Normandy to the Elbe River. In an exhibition of brilliantly imaginative and thorough research, he examines the training, leadership, tactics, and replacement policies that permitted American infantry regiments to remain cohesive enough to keep gaining ground despite personnel losses that totaled sixty-four percent by the war's end. Cutting edge scholarship on the U.S. Army's war in the ETO." -Journal of American History

"A gripping tale of American GIs facing combat under the worst imaginable conditions." -Peter Mansoor, author of The GI Offensive in Europe: The Triumph of American Infantry Divisions, 1941-1945

"A superb combat history that shatters long-held concepts on American versus German performance and vividly describes the horror and agony of close combat." -Edward G. Miller, author of A Dark and Bloody Ground: The Hurtgen Forest and the Roer River Dams, 1944-1945
