Fatal Crossroads: The Untold Story of the Malmédy Massacre at the Battle of the Bulge
Dec 17, 2011
This is a very gripping account of a tragic incident that occured during the opening phase of the Battle of the Bulge toward the end of WWII. The intentional massacre of captured American soldiers by elemenys of a Waffen SS armored unit and the subsequent attempts at revisiionist attempts to cover it up are illusrative of moderen warfare at its worst. Much of the story is told in the words of German participants and American survivors. This results in some redundancy but is also illustrative of how eyewitnesses see the same event but all report it somewhat differently. This is an extremely well researched and documented book- there are over 125 pages of appendices and notes. Don't fail to read appendix IV as it pretty much ies everything together. A compelling read.
