"If anyone wants to read a very interesting and basically True story. This is it. The field Artillery never gets any credit for the part that they play in a Battle. You will learn how the Artillery works and what a great small Battalion of the 106th Inf. Div. did in the Battle of the Bulge." *****
"For military historians or former artillerymen this book is pretty good. The detail is good, however, I think that a little more breadth beyond the 106th Infantry Division would have created a better feel for the overall contribution of the field artillery to this battle. One doesn't really get the desperation that the first few days of battle generated. A good read, I would love to see a follow-up with more information about other artillery units in the bulge. "
