Forlagets beskrivelse

Penguin presents the unabridged, downloadable, audiobook edition of Ardennes 1994 by Antony Beever, read by Sean Barrett. On 16 December 1944, Hitler launched his 'last gamble' in the snow-covered forests and gorges of the Ardennes on the Belgian/German border. Although Hitler's generals were doubtful of success, younger officers and NCOs were desperate to believe that their homes and families could be saved from the vengeful Red Army approaching from the east. The Ardennes offensive, with more than a million men involved, became the greatest battle of the war in western Europe. In January 1945, when the Red Army launched its onslaught towards Berlin, the once-feared German war machine was revealed to be broken beyond repair. The Ardennes was the battle which finally broke the Wehrmacht.

Detailed But Hard To Follow

The book is very detailed when it comes to places, battles, army organisation and so on. It's a well written account of the events, what led to them and the impact on following events. Problem is, it's an audio book. It's hard to keep track of places and names of armies, battalions, divisions and so on. This is no fault of the book, naturally, but I experienced a number of individual accounts of the fighting, rather than a cohesive whole. Also, the narration suffers from muddy pronunciation, which made it difficult to understand at times, as English isn't my primary language.
