Description:
"Generals of the Ardennes is not a conventional history of the Battle of the Bulge, but a study of US command leadership at different levels during that fiery December of 1944 when a German offensive against the center of the American lines threatened to split the massed Allied Armies. It shows how US commanders from Eisenhower himself down through Army Group, Army, Corps, and Division commanders met the heavy burdens of leadership in the crucible of that bloody winter"--Foreword.
American forces in the Ardennes -- Eisenhower and the Supreme Command -- Bradley and the 12th Army Group -- Simpson and the Ninth Army -- Middleton and the Eighth Corps -- The defenses of St.-Vith : Jones and Clarke -- Heroes and victims.
