Osprey Special Editions (Military) : Into the Reich : Battles on Germany's Western Frontier 1944-1945 In the aftermath of the German collapse in the west in the summer of 1944, Allied armies rampaged across France and Belgium. This book covers the major battles of the two-year struggle for the Rhine (Lorraine, Operation Market Garden, the Battle of the Bulge, and Eisenhower's bloody assault on the Rhine). It begins with Hitler's counter-attack on Patton's army in the Lorraine in 1944 being crushed by General Patton, and Allied armies closing on the borders of the Reich. The Allied plan to end the war at a stroke ended in bloody failure at Arnhem, but a German offensive in the Ardennes, Hitler's last roll of the dice on the western front, proved equally futile. With German forces bled white, the Allies hurled themselves across the River Rhine to bring the crumbling edifice of Hitler's 1,000-year Reich crashing in ruin. This book combines Campaign 5 : 'Ardennes 1944', Campaign 24 : 'Arnhem 1944', Campaign 74 : 'The Rhineland 1945' and Campaign 75 : 'Lorraine 1944'. Text by Ford Zaloga, Arnold Badsy and James R. Arnold.
