    One thought on “The Battle of the Bulge”

    1. I have read about the Battle of the Bulge before and this book does an average level of describing it. I feel it was missing some side details about the fight. It still did a pretty good job of what happened overall through the battle. The story had a good background of what happened before the battle. Its description of allied commander tactics was pretty good but it fell short on the Nazi side of the fight. I felt as if Stephen could have incorporated more stories from people in the warfront i [...]

    2. I picked this up from a library e-book search. I was disappointed in it. It felt like something for high school students. And when I went to add it to , I found it was an American Heritage Junior title. If you've read anything about the Battle of the Bulge, skip this one. If all you have seen is the Band of Brothers, this would be a good introduction to what else was happening with the Bulge.

    3. Nothing on the cover or inside the jacket of the copy I purchased indicated it was intended for younger readers. It is. I could have accepted that, as I often pass my books on to kids, but not this one.The book has numerous unforgivable errors and downright fictions concerning the battle. Understand that this the eighth book I've read in the last year dealing exclusively with the Battle Of The Bulge, and I was touring the battlefield last month with a Belgian tour guide who was extraordinarily w [...]

    4. This book is not for the "historian". It is not filled with the details that one doing research would be looking for. However, it does have its merits and I don't think you'd be disappointed in the read. It is an easily digestible work for someone who is looking for a casual read that broadens the perspective of arguably one the toughest battles in the history of the US Army.

    5. An excellent introduction to this epic battle late in World War II. I read the Kindle version, which could have benefitted from some maps. I would recommend having a battlefield map handy to help understand the overall scope of the Ardennes Offensive. Also, a bibliography or author's note would be helpful for further reading into the topic, but overall a fascinating book.

    6. There are much better books about the Ardennes battle. This was one of Sears' first books and it shows; it does not have the maturity of voice of a Chancellorsville or a Gettysburg.
