London: Greenhill/ Pa.: Stackpole, 1999. xiv, 237 pp. Illus, maps, tables, index. . $34.95. ISBN:1-85367-654-4

Bulge-maven Danny Parker has her brought together six German documents (two speeches by Hitler, post battle interviews with Rundstedt, Jodl, one of Model’s principal staff officers, plus a long essay by Schraam, the official Wehrmacht diarist), to present some new and interesting perspective on the battle. Particularly important for anyone interested in operations in Northwest Europe in 1944-1945.
