View Full Description

“Winter always reminds me of the Battle of the Bulge,” writes William Whiting of his service in World War II. Whiting, a survey officer for an artillery battalion, was caught up in some of the worst fighting conditions in the European Theater during the winter of 1944-1945. In his memoir dramatic descriptions of memories that can’t fade combine with a generous helping of documentation—over two dozen maps—to make for the best kind of history: personal and wholly authentic.
