    Book details


Between September 1944 and February 1945, 30,000 GIs were either killed or wounded in the longest battle ever fought by the US Army. In this book the author examines the issues involved in an engagement that was censored and omitted from official memoirs at the time. American generals continued pouring men into the Hurtgen Forest after eight infantry and two armoured divisions had failed to dislodge German troops from a network of concrete emplacements among the trees. There was a 50% casualty rate and whole battalions broke down from terror and exhaustion.
