Overview
During the Battle of the Bulge, the 101st Airborne made their legendary stand at Bastogne. But their heroics never could have happened if not for the unsung efforts of others.
This is the powerful yet little-known story of the bloody delaying action fought by the 28th Infantry Division, elements of the 9th and 10th Armored Divisions, and other, smaller units. Outnumbered and outgunned, they made the Germans pay for every icy inch of ground they gained. It was their gallant efforts that allowed the 101st Airborne to reach and fully occupy Bastogne and prepare for the ferocious attack to come.
Featuring numerous helpful maps and a complete list of the soldiers, local civilians, and German commanders whose actions it recounts, "Alamo in the Ardennes" provides a compelling, day-by-day account of this pivotal moment in America's greatest war.
