Summary

As a newly commissioned captain of a veteran US Army regiment, MacDonald's first combat experience was war at its most hellish - the Battle of the Bulge.

In this plainspoken but eloquent narrative, we live each minute at MacDonald's side, sharing in all of combat's misery, terror, and drama. How this green commander gains his men's loyalty in the snows of war-torn Europe is one of the most unforgettable war stories of all time.

Interesting Read

This is a really good read, giving a good account of the struggles of a US unit, in Europe just before the end of WW11, worth a read.

very good book about a personal experience

loved this book, good personal account of ww2 battle of the bulge through to the end of the war. would be nice to hear a little pre war and post war of this commander, but overall a very good book also nice to follow the footsteps of 2nd Indian heads in ardeenes instead of 101st A/B

Exceptional story

An incredible first person account of a company commander in a World War II. The story brings to life the actions of the 2nd division in the final year of the war with riveting action.
