Summary
A dissection of eight World War II battles taking the perspective of the US Amry infantrymen who faced the German Panzers. The battles were chosen for investigation because of the wide variety of engagements they represented such as river crossings, defensive operations, assaults on towns, rapid advance, or intense combat. The sites include Mortain, Arnaville, Lucherberg, Hosingen, Krinkelt and Rocherath, Dom Butgenbach, Butzdorf and Tettingen. c. Book News Inc
