    1 thought on “Hitler's Last Gamble: The Battle of the Bulge, December 1944-January 1945”

    1. If you have a term paper due on the controversy over the actual starting time of the Battle of St. Vith, you’ll want this book. Need to know the names, birthdates, matriculation and graduation, promotion sequences and other detailed information about each general officer and many colonels in the battle? This book is for you. Do you want the positions, personnel strengths, movements and origins of all the units in the battle from all sides, from north to south, east to west, day one to day 31? [...]

    2. A very detailed book on each action that occurred during the Battle of the Bulge. Details all of the divisions involved on all the participants. Uses very little personal accounts and focuses mostly on the big picture. Talks about key moments and why the Germans were ultimately stopped short of their objectives. There are better writers out there that tell a better story but this was the most detailed book on a WW2 battle that I've ever read.

    3. It takes a labor of love to finish reading this book.: I love to read nearly anything and everything I can find about WW2 history. This was one of those rare instances, however, where I picked up a book, read about half of it, then put it back down never to finish it. I just couldn't force myself to read any more.Although the Battle of the Bulge is without a doubt one of the more interesting episodes of the war, and Dupuy provides a detailed account, in my opinion he's just a little too detailed [...]

    4. I found this book, too technical and very hard to follow. I see where Dupuy is trying to keep it chronilogically in order, but at the same time he is trying to keep it by sector. At times I got lost trying to follow. Great appendices with all sorts of technical data about the campaign.

    5. The Battle of the Bulge. Appendices are great. The additional information and data are what makes this a great book for war gamers. As a general history it is okay, no more.

    6. This was a tedious book to read. But it provides an excellent view of the complexity of the Ardenne Campaign, or "The Battle of the Bulge."

    7. Most detailed military book i've read. If you are not a total WWII or military buff - this may not be the book for you. But, my Military History class will love it.
