Battle At St. Vith, Belgium, 17-23 December, 1944 [Illustrated Edition] Summary


Battle At St. Vith, Belgium, 17-23 December, 1944 [Illustrated Edition] - Includes 11 excellently detailed maps
This is the narrative of one phase of the greatest pitched battles on the Western Front in World War II. The battle of St. Vith is an excellent example of how American Troops held their ground in the midst of confusion, defeat, and uncertainty; and thereby threw the German timetable sufficiently off schedule to allow American forces to regroup, hold, and then counterattack. The stand at St. Vith has been recognized by both German and Allied commanders as a turning point in the Battle of the Bulge.
