• A masterful re-telling of the 29th Infantry Division's campaign in the Rhineland

Military historian Joseph Balkoski, named "the top living D-Day historian” by USA Today, continues his acclaimed history of the U.S. 29th Infantry Division in World War II with this book, which recounts the division's vital role in the U.S. Army's November 1944 offensive on the Western Front, which General Omar Bradley hoped would get the Allies to the Rhine River by Christmas. Focusing on the men who did the fighting, Balkoski blends meticulous research with masterful storytelling in this riveting story of heroism and tragedy, during which thousands of 29-ers became casualties in a campaign that ultimately failed to end the war by early 1945.
