The Battle of the Bulge

The Losheim Gap/Holding the Line

Book Description

  • The U.S. Army's bloodiest battle of World War II
  • From-the-foxhole stories of American soldiers in combat
  • Based on official U.S. Army documents and after-action reports

    Most accounts of the Battle of the Bulge focus on Bastogne, but the Germans' main thrust actually occurred to the north, where Sepp Dietrich's Sixth SS Panzer Army stormed through the Losheim Gap. In this region of thick forests and tiny villages, U.S. troops halted the best of the German war machine, including the 12th SS Panzer and the 3rd Fallschirmjäger Divisions.
