Battle East of Elsenborn is nicely crafted book that tells the tale of the 2nd and 99th ID's fight against the Germans during the Ardennes offensive in December 1944. Mr. Cavanagh opens by describing the 99th ID prior to the German offensive. Focus is on their regimental position in covering for the 2nd ID's offensive to capture the Roer Dams. This short section is then followed by a day-to-day, sometimes a segment of a battle field during a day description of the fight. While Mr. Cavanagh used the veterans descriptions of the battlefield, he does a great job of not relying on one veterans description to much and describing the overall situation with his own words very nicely. The conclusion, rather than being large is rather short. Rather than continueing the battle thru January '45, Mr. Cavanagh leaves us with the Germans being stopped and the true grit of the men in the 2nd and 99th ID (the 1st ID is mentioned in the last part of the book) and the way the locals Belgium people have remembered them.

As I've said, this is a very solid book. Review wise, a solid 5 star book. Mr. Cavanagh's text is to the point but descriptive, the photo's are out of this world, I hadn't seen many of them prior to this book, there's some great photo's of the different battlefields with text to describe the situation, and a few maps. As a matter of fact, the weakest part of the book is the maps, however the photo's more than make up for them! I look forward to reading more of Mr. Cavanagh's books!

This book is really a great read, and fills in an important gap in the written histories of the Battle of the Bulge. That said, I must point out that this is a reprint of a book published in 1986 that I already owned entitled "Krinkelt-Rocherath, The Battle for the Twin Villages". This does not detract from the high quality of the book, but I already had it under a different title. It would have been helpful to know that this was in fact a reprint and not a new book.

Mr. Cavanagh takes the reader down to the unit level dealing with battalions, compines, platoons and squads. This work also includes many first person accounts from veterans of the battle. This is a detailed account of a critical engagement that prevented the Germans from brakeing through on the North shoulder of the Bluge and causing their time table to be badly disrupted from which they never recovered. The book gives the reader a view of the battle all the way from the top to the foxhole. I highly recommend this book to any one intrested in the Battle of the Bulge or any one who would like to learn more about how our GIs beat the best the Germans could throw at them.

Over the years I have read a lot of books on WWII. This book has given me an entirely new outlook on the Battle of the Bulge. To make the reading more enjoyable I enjoy looking at Google Maps to see the towns I'm reading about.
A well researched historical account on "The Battle of the Bulge" and the fierce fighting in and around the "Twin Villages" of Krinkelt and Rocherath in December 1944.
