Description


After the success at Normandy, the Allied commanders are confident that the war in Europe will soon be over. But in December 1944, in the Ardennes Forest, the Germans launch a ruthless counteroffensive that begins the Battle of the Bulge. The Fuhrer will spare nothing to preserve his twisted vision of a Thousand Year Reich, but stout American resistance defeats the German thrust. "No Less Than Victory" is a riveting account presented through the eyes of Eisenhower, Patton, and the soldiers who struggled face-to-face with their enemy, as well as from the vantage point of Germany's old soldier, Gerd von Rundstedt, and Hitler's golden boy, Albert Speer. Jeff Shaara carries the reader on a journey that defines the spirit of the soldier and the horror of a madman's dreams.
