Peter Caddick-Adams is one of the leading military historians of his generation. This is the second volume of his definitive account of the liberation of Europe in 1944-45. 'Sand & Steel' is a new study of the Liberation of France, made up of D-Day, the Southern France landings and the activities of the Resistance. It tells the story of almost a whole year, beginning on 10 December 1943, when Eisenhower was appointed Supreme Commander of the Allied Expeditionary Forces (SHAEF). It then follows the US build-up in England, the invasions & subsequent combat, dwells on the contribution of the Resistance, and ends with the liberation of Strasbourg on the Franco-German border, on 23 November 1944, at the point where Snow and Steel began.

Book:Snow & steel, Battle of the Bulge 1944-45:2015 Book
Author: Caddick Adams, Peter
Year: 2015
Language: English
Type: Book
Content type: Bibliography
Publisher: Arrow Books
Physical or Electronic: Physical
Note: Originally published: London: Preface Publishing, 2014 Peter Caddick-Adams presents a reassessment of Hitler's last great throw of the dice - 'The Battle of the Bulge', the battle for the Ardennes, 16 December 1944 to 25 January 1945. This is an utterly fascinating five weeks when for a time it looked like Hitler had outflanked the allied armies pushing toward the Rhine and might just throw them back to the Normandy beaches. It is also the context for the catastrophic events at Bastogne depicted so graphically in Band of Brothers.
xlvii, 872 pages, illustrations (black and white), maps (black and white) ; 22 cm (pbk)
