For the US Army, this was the largest land battle of World War II, involving 500,000 Americans, 600,000 German troops and 55,000 British. An atmosphere of fear and suspicion prevailed; communications were cut, massacres reported and German Special Forces in enemy uniforms filtrated the Allied ranks. In just over a month of fighting both sides suffered immense losses - around 80,000 each. With them went Hitler's chance of saving both himself and the Third Reich.
Here are the personal experiences of military planners, soldiers, generals, and civilians, recorded during and after the battle in contemporary letters, diaries, army reports and recorded interviews; a unique insight into a decisive turning point on the road to victory.'
