The Last Offensive

By: Charles B MacDonald (583/35860)
Publisher: BDD Special Editions ISBN: 0792458583

Hitlerís last desperate attempt to bring the Allies to a separate peace table had failed with the German counter offensive of the Ardennes in the winter of 1944-45. The American Army was on the verge of total victory in Europe.

But the Germans, faced with only unconditional surrender as an alternative, were to fight pugnaciously for every inch of ground. This volume follows the four U.S. Armies in their sweep across Germany; the capture of the bridge of Remagen; assault crossings of the Rhine, including a spectacular airbone drop; the capture of thousands of Germans in the Ruhr; the terrible discovery of the concentration camps and the final dash for the Elbe River to meet the Russian army.
