This is the most account I read of this battle. Being a veteran, there were many moments I shed tears during the horrible challenges our soldiers faced. This book gave a more personal account of what happened. This is a "must read" book.

Would you listen to Battle again? Why?
Mr Toland needs congratulations on what is a great read. So well researched and animated in a way many popular historians have not been able to do with such skill. I know the battle well (Soldier for 23 years), and who has ever done Staff College without the 'Bulge'.American arms growing up and entering world history with thunder and courage. It was a great battle and has never been praised enough for the shear courage and professionalism of American Armies. For that is what we are talking about, a clash of titanic proportion and infantry losses 3x that of the Eastern Front. Again, well done Mr Toland I would love to chat with you one day on certain points, but if you are a history buff and want a story to tell the 'Spartans' this is the one to get. (And and I apologize for the crass and churlish out pourings from Field Marshal Montgomery bringing shame to so many British Tommie's who bled and died next to their American brothers)

A well written book.
It's a shame that the reader made no effort to get the pronunciation of places and names of towns, rivers and countryside correct
What did you like most about Battle?
The story was well written and read, most informative and enjoyable. Just what i was looking for.
What other book might you compare Battle to, and why?
The history of world war 2 by Anthony Beevor
What does Dan Butler bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
The various intonations in his voice bring the characters to life.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Very much so.
Any additional comments?
I loved this story and was happy to find it in audiobook.
