Outstanding book on the Ardennes Offensive - filled with details. I've owned this book for years - publishing on my copy was 1999 - and it was the first I used in research for my own books - a 'go to' fact filled book and I have so many post it notes stuck to the sides and edges.

Parker obviously knows his topic, I just wish he had an editor. The work is at times repetitive, at times used misspelled words. Ewe now the tripe.

At times the book is very good, at times it's no more than a litany of facts and figures. It would really have benefited from better editing.
