As the final month of fighting in Europe in 1945 dawned the Allies embarked upon a series of mopping up operations, destroying the last centres of German resistance as the essentially defeated Wehrmacht fought on in increasingly desperate conditions, driven on by the explicit no surrender order issued by Hitler. Yet at the same time, the Allied alliance was already on shaky ground, as German resistance was crushed the Allies began to eye each other nervously across a battletorn Europe, with the politically driven military decisions to have a huge impact on the future of the continent. This book traces the final operations of the war, from the liberation of Denmark, the Allied drive towards the Baltic straits, incursions in Yugoslavia, Hungary, Czechoslovakia and engagements in Eastern and Western Germany, whilst also analyzing how the Allied strategies in the final days of the war were a hint of the future difficulties that would drive the Cold War.

The Battle of the Bulge was the largest and most costly battle fought by the US Army in World War II. The Ardennes fighting was Hitler's last gamble on the Western Front, crippling the Wehrmacht for the remainder of the war. In the first of two volumes on the Ardennes campaign Steven Zaloga details the fighting in the northern sector around St Vith and the Elsenborn Ridge. Sixth Panzer Army, containing the bulk of German Panzer strength, was expected to achieve the breakthrough here. It was the failure around St Vith that forced the Germans to look south towards Bastogne.

At 5:30 AM, Saturday morning, December 16, 1944, more than 286,000 German soldiers, supported by 970 tanks and assault guns, and augmented by 1,900 artillery pieces, ferociously assaulted a small number of resting and recuperating American divisions along an 85 mile front of the Ardennes Forest in Southern Belgium. The resulting campaign would be one of the most dynamic, spectacular and brutal ever fought in the history of warfare. The Americans would forever refer to it as: The Battle Of The Bulge. The Germans called it: The Great Ardennes Counter Offensive. In order to launch such an audacious attach in the first place, Nazi Germany had to draw upon every available means and resource they had left. And, they did. Beginning in the second week of September 1944, manpower, weapons, and supplies from all over the Reich were gathered up and secretly massed together in the Eifel, just opposite the Ardennes. Considering the tremendous shellacking the Germans had taken throughout the summer of 1944, this was nothing less than a feat of astronomical proportions. In the Book, Wacht Am Rhein, author Timothy J. Thompson, describes in detail exactly how this entire process unfolded. He takes the reader through Hitlers stunning announcement in the Wolfs Lair on September 16, all the way up through the final preparations for the great attack. It is spell-binding and spine tingling. There are 50 excellent photographs for the readers enjoyment, along with a full and comprehensive index that makes it quite easy to locate little bits of information at the drop of a hat. It is a book that you wont be able to put down.

As World War II entered its later stages and Germany was forced increasingly onto the defensive, the need for fast-moving mobile forces lessened and the Wehrmacht required better protected and more powerfully armed tanks. After debacles against the T-34, Hitler and the Panzerwaffe were determined not to be unprepared again. The result of this determination was the production of the heaviest and largest tank to see combat during World War II, the Tiger II or Konigstiger (Kingtiger). This title examines this formidable weapon, covering the problems and controversies surrounding its design and production as well as a detailed listing of every unit that was equipped with the Tiger II.

This book examines the technology and strategy that defined the outcome of the battles between the King Tiger and the IS-2. The Soviets had been quick to develop tanks that could fight the Tiger on an equal footing, but these were developed as part of a completely different strategy than that employed by the Germans. The King Tiger was a modern marvel, and remained unmatched in one-on-one combat. Technologically superior, with greater firepower and better armour than the Soviet IS-2, the King Tiger was a formidable opponent. However, the IS-2 was lighter, more manoeuvrable and most importantly, far more numerous. With overwhelming numerical superiority the Soviets were able to simply overwhelm their opponents, negating the technical superiority of the King Tiger
