An important historical work on the Battle of the Bulge reprinted,
with notes on the various editions, contents of all known editions, and a complete index.
The US Army Armored School's The Defense of St. Vith, Belgium 17-23 December 1944: An historical example of armor in the defense is an important work on the Battle of the Bulge (the Ardennes Offensive) that has been difficult to find, since it has never been widely available. It is a well-researched history of the battle at St. Vith as a study of armor in the defense (although it is inadequate as a general history, since it intentionally limits its scope as its subtitle states).
Now a comprehensive indexed version of the book is available. Wesley Johnston has compiled the contents of all known editions, has indexed the book for the first time, and has added notes on the various editions. The resulting book is 72 pages, with no cover, bound by 3 staples, to keep costs low and make the book affordable.
The cost is $40, which includes shipping and handling.
- If you are a veteran of the Battle of the Bulge who was in the Ardennes at St. Vith or in the Schnee Eifel east of St. Vith (primarily, but not exclusively, the 7th Armored Division, 106th Infantry Division, 112th Infantry Regiment of the 28th Infantry Division, and CCB of 9th Armored Division), the cost is $35 (please identify your outfit with your order).
- For orders to be mailed outside the United States postal system, the price is an additional $5 (i.e $45, or $40 for those who were there).
To order copies of the book, please send a check (sorry but I am not set up for credit cards), payable to Wesley Johnston, to the address below. Please include your e-mail address with your order.
