Ebook Description

"Drawing on primary Wehrmacht and US sources, including battle analyses and daily after-action reports, the Roer River battles provides insight into the desperate German efforts to keep a conquering enemy at the borders of their homeland. Tactical maps down to battalion level help clarify the very fluid nature of the combat. Combined, they serve to explain not just how, but why decisions were made and events unfolded, and how reality often differed from doctrine in one of the longest and bloodiest US campaigns of World War II"--Dust jacket.
