In December 1944, the Tiger tanks of Kampfgruppe Peiper, Germany's most formidable battle group, roared through the snowy Ardennes as the spearhead of Hitler's last-ditch offensive that aimed to seize Allied supply ports and started the Battle of the Bulge. In one of World War II's most notorious actions, the unit-commanded by the seasoned SS officer Jochen Peiper-massacred American prisoners near Malmedy during its drive to the Meuse River. Fuel shortages and stiffening U.S. resistance later forced the group to retreat back to German lines on foot. Book jacket.
