No Less Than Victory : A Novel of World War II
by Jeff Shaara




Overview -
After the success at Normandy, the Allied commanders are confident that the war in Europe will soon be over. But in December 1944, in the Ardennes Forest, the Germans launch a ruthless counteroffensive that begins the Battle of the Bulge--the last gasp by Hitler's forces and some of the most brutal fighting of the war. The F hrer will spare nothing--not even German lives--to preserve his twisted vision of a "Thousand Year Reich," but stout American resistance defeats the German thrust, and by spring 1945 the German army faces total collapse. With Russian troops closing in on Berlin, Hitler commits suicide. As the Americans sweep through the German countryside, they encounter the worst of Hitler's crimes, the concentration camps, and young GIs find themselves absorbing firsthand the horrors of the Holocaust.

No Less Than Victory is a riveting account presented through the eyes of Eisenhower, Patton, and the soldiers who struggled face-to-face with their enemy, as well as from the vantage point of Germany's old soldier, Gerd von Rundstedt, and Hitler's golden boy, Albert Speer. Jeff Shaara carries the reader on a journey that defines the spirit of the soldier and the horror of a madman's dreams.
