Item 29 of 103
DECISION AT SAINT VITH. The devastating story of how 250,000 Germans destroyed the unprepared U.S. 106th Infantry Division that had never been in battle and was resting near Saint Vith in the peaceful forests of the Ardennes.

Click to EnlargeDECISION AT ST VITH. by Charles Whiting. Volume 6 of the WEST WALL SERIES. Decision at St. Vith tells the devastating story of the terror and chaos of battle, of men who fought until they died and others who quickly surrendered, of officers relieved of command and orders that bore no relation to reality. Finally, out of ammunition and food, and completely surrounded, 6,700 Americans of the 106th were forced to surrender to the Nazis in the largest American unit surrender since Bataan. This was the night when the full might of Hitler's armies exploded in the first shattering blow of the Battle of the Bulge.

A quarter of a million of Hitler's men, 2,000 pieces of artillery and 980 tanks launched themselves at the inexperienced and unprepared US troops who were resting in the forests of the Ardennes. The young soldiers of the US 106th (Golden Lion) Division were huddled in their foxholes trying to sleep. They had never been in battle and were told they occupied a "rest sector" on the front.

This excellent account brings home in vivid detail the brutalities of this last desperate attack by the Germans, of the crushing defeat of the 106th Infantry Division against overwhelming odds, and the valiant defense by the U.S. 7th Armored Division and the 14th Cavalry Group. Also covers the deployment of the U.S. First Army, Third Army, Ninth Army, 3rd Armored Division, 82nd Airborne and 101st Airborne, Bastogne, the Meuse River, the importance of Luxembourg, Schnee Eifel, Schonbert 6" x 9", 261 pages, 16 pages b/w photos,
